Spotlight 10 – Mari winner!

The winner this week is Armenia. I just popped you an email. Congrats!

Feels a bit strange doing a spotlight on yourself, especially since this whole website sort of shows what I do, so I thought instead I’d write you (imagine teacher from A Christmas Story here) a theme…

What I did on my summer vacation!

My family just returned from an AWESOME 16 day trip. We took the train cross country from Harper’s Ferry, WV to Seattle, WA. It took just over three days and it’s truly an incredible way to see the United States.

Once in Seattle, we did a whirlwind tour of the city–Space Needle, Sci-Fi and Music Museum, Pike’s Place Market (they throw fish!), the first Starbucks ever. Great time.

From Seattle we took a ferry that dropped us off on the Olympic Peninsula where we drove to Forks. Yes, I admit it–I’m Twilight mad. My hubby was very sweet and agreed to take my daughter and me on our self-guided tour of all the places connected to Twilight–we went to La Push beach and Port Angeles. Shopped at all the Twilight stores on the main strip in Forks. We also saw Hurricane Ridge which is BY FAR one of the most breathtaking places I’ve ever seen.

The last week of our trip was spent in Vancouver, Washington with some very dear friends of ours. They showed us all around and we saw waterfalls, lavender farms, Mt. Hood, Portland. It was a brilliant trip!

Best part was my friends made Mari Carr t-shirts to surprise me. I came out on their back deck one night and both of them and my husband were wearing them–the sayings were too funny and I thought I’d share them: 

“The Tequila Truth is I’m Mari Carr’s number 1 fan.”

“I do Erotic Research with No Regrets.”

Hubby’s was the best! “I get to have Naughty Nooners with Mari Carr!”

Even their two-year-old daughter Katy had one that said, “Kiss Me, Kate!”

Jokingly told my girlfriend that if I ever got as big as Janet Evanovich (yeah, don’t I wish! LOL), she could run my online store!

So what did y’all do this summer? Anything fun? Leave a comment here and your name will be put in a drawing. Winner will be announced August 29 and will receive choice of anything from my backlist.

    Mari, congrats on being in the spotlight. I’m glad you had a great time on your summer vacation. I love the t-shirts, what a great surprise for you! We went to Treasure Island, FL for our vacation and it was wonderful. All I did was spend the whole week sitting on the beach reading and playing in the ocean with my hubby and son.

    Mari..that was a cute post. I love the sayings on the t-shirt. Congratulations being in the SPOTLIGHT!!! Yeah, love your hot books and keep them coming.

    Summer with the family was just plain HOT, I mean, we pretty much lived in the water. Its the only way to weather out the Texas heat besides being at the mall or movie theaters. I am ready for the kids to start school, so I can get down to some serious reading.

    Have a great spotlight week.

    Enjoy your spotlight Mari. You have more than earned it. I adore your books.

    Sounds like a great vacation Mari. Those T-shirt logos are priceless. You should have some made up for friends and fans.
