Share your Decade!

I stumbled upon The Peach Tart she posted this chart "The decade in review!" I loved it and thought I'd share it on my post today:) Please see her blog and read the chart it's great!

So in the spirit of the chart I decided that I would post my own top events that happened for me in this decade. The list was sooo long and I didn't want you guys to doze off:) I narrowed it down to my top 5 events!!!

1. The Birth of my twins: Cameron Evan 8lb 2oz and Sydney Erin 6lbs 7oz
2. The loss of my mother Pauline to Ovarian Cancer
3. Relocated to Georgia and bought a fixer upper with Hubby!!!

4. Celebrated my Brother finally getting married right before 50:)
5. My own Fifteen minutes of fame (well more like 7 fabulous minutes:) when The Travel Channel sent me on an all expense paid once in a lifetime trip to Europe with my girlfriends!

What are your top 5 best events over the past Decade?

I would love to hear yours, please feel free to post even if your anonymous:)

Happy New Year!!!

My top five but not exactly in this order: getting a better job, getting a better car because I couldn't drive the other one at night because driving with the lights on made it stop, letting go of people that did me no good, getting my hair cut for me, letting bygones be bygones.

Going natural and chopping all my hair off, the publication of my first book, accepting the fact that I am not religious, turning 40, sending Firstborn to public school.

OOOHHH!!!! I love this! Okay, do you mind if I bite this for my blog post tomorrow? I'm gonna! And I'll give you all the credit.

Okay, YOU are incredibly beautiful and so are those babies—as was your mom. And your brother's wife is a stunner. Good grief—all that beauty!

I don't have a top 5 this year, all I can say is bring on 2010! You had a great year, though I'm sorry to hear about your mom. My post today is about Cancer awareness and donations for research. Come check it out.

I hope your 2010 is even better!

Great post, this has really made me think. 2009 has been pretty awful, but so many good things have happened over the past decade!

(1) Finishing medical school

(2) Surviving PRHO/SHO years (internship and first three years of residency)

(3) Amazing travel experiences

(4) Buying my own home in London

(5) Securing my dream job in a specialty I love.

Put like that, the most amazing decade yet! Thank you so much for forcing me to think positive, I'm so glad I clicked on your link at SITS! Happy New Year :)
