Treasure Hunt

Yesterday I woke up and asked my husband if he'd take me on a treasure hunt. Being the awesome person that he is, he agreed.

We had to get the truck out for the hunt. So we thought we'd bring the pups along. Here's Charlie dog loving the wind in his face:

It was a beautiful sunny day in New York. Hopefully we have a few more sunny days before fall and winter set in:
I snagged a picture of this really cool red bridge:
We drove for a bit and finally made it to our destination:
I had taken the treasure hunt clue from this site and went to where I thought it would be. Would it still be there? It was!!! (I LOVE that it says "#1 Literary Archaeologist)
So I brought it to the lovely ladies at the counter and voila! Woohoo!
Here's me outside with my loot.
Thanks Merritt Bookstore in Millbrook, New York for participating in the treasure hunt!

And a HUGE thanks to Michelle Moran for the treasure hunt! She autographed the copy of Cleopatra's Daughter and included some great bookmarks as well.

She also included beautiful Cleopatra earrings and an authentic Roman coin. That is just awesome:
Here's my loot for the day. I bought Michelle's second book The Heretic Queen while I was at the bookstore.
Oh! And last year when we went to Egypt, I bought an alabaster etching of Cleopatra which matches the earrings. Too cool:

Now I have all her novels. Thanks again for the wonderful treasure hunt!!


  1. Congratulations! That's very exciting that you won plus you got a great road trip.

  2. HOW COOL! I am very jealous of your awesome prizes! I went to Egypt two years ago, what a neat place to visit. Did you have pigeon?!

  3. That is so totally cool! I'm so glad you won! I have Cleopatra's Daughter waiting to be reviewed sometime before the end of the year - it looks really good and I can't wait to start it. So glad you found the treasure!

  4. Congratulations on finding your treasure! I saw some of your tweets and thought it sounded like such fun. :)

  5. What fun! That's the coolest treasure hunt ever!

  6. Damn, I'm so jealous. That just sounds like the coolest treasure hunt ever. :)

  7. How neat! Now that's a great treasure hunt :)

  8. That's awesome! Congrats!
