50 Questions for My (Upcoming) 50th Birthday, Project Life Style

momandmeI am working on a Project Life book for my upcoming 50th birthday, with 50 questions I am asking (& answering) myself. The book will be more journaling than photos, unlike my regular Project Life book. I was thinking something like this might have been neat to see from my own mom, and I hope my children find it interesting later on. (I will make a copy of it for each of them.)

Here are the 50 questions that I am planning to include. What questions would YOU include for your own book?

  1. What are your favorite books?
  2. What were your favorite books as a kid?
  3. Where have you lived? (I plan to plot these on a map)
  4. What are the best concerts you ever saw?
  5. Do you have any memorable injuries?
  6. What kind of things have you won in contests?

  1. Great idea. My 50th is coming up in 2 years. #43 would not apply since I only have one child. The question itself makes me anxious. I would be concerned about hurt feelings. Kids usually figure out who is the favorite. Having it spelled out in writing is going to be salt in that wound.
