Last year I took a trip to Graceland in Memphis, TN and loved every touristy minute of it!

Me and my Mom on our way through the private plane, the Lisa Marie.  Unreal!

This year I am off to Chicago, mom and aunt in tow again.  We plan to see a show on Friday evening, go through the Frank Lloyd Wright home tour on Saturday and then the times in between and on Sunday will be filled with museums, galleries and eating as much good food as possible.  That is our favorite way to see every city- through our bellies!  I am getting VERY excited because it has been so long since I have visited the windy city and time is ticking down.  We leave next Friday- WHOOHOO!

We have had lots of suggestions for places to go and restaurants to enjoy, but we are always looking for more info....So, tell me what you know!

Absent, Delinquent, Tardy, Neglectful, Just Plain Gone....

July 2, 2008 07:02 by ehouston

Okay, so I have been MIA for a little while.  I know, I know….I just go off to Memphis and then disappear after promising a delightfully kitsch recap of the wonders of the adventure.  Sorry…. 
 

I was giddy for about a week after coming home and rode that feeling through the first week of June.  Then that giddiness (is that a word?) was replaced by Birthday Butterflies for the second week of the month- WhooHoo!  The good times continued into week three with some great gifts and good news.  

I have such a good guy....

      

GlutenFree Baby! 

 

The final week of June was spent traveling to corporate destinations to visit with team mates and learn of all the company happenings.  So, the month whirled by and without a single Elvis update.  Again, I apologize…..
 

July has rolled in with a whole new list of priorities, including finishing the Den remodel, entertaining family in a few weeks, attending some sort of Nascar event and hopefully planning an ever-elusive trip to North GA to visit a dear friend.  I promise to get some Memphis Trip Scrapbook pictures up soon.  In the meantime, please enjoy this kitschy website I found.

TTFN!

I'm going to Graceland, Graceland....Memphis, TN....

May 21, 2008 05:50 by ehouston

That’s right!  I am finally making the pilgrimage to Kitsch Mecca!  For years and years, I have wanted to see the place Elvis called home, no make that the place he called “Graceland”.  I am not exactly a big Elvis music fan, but his mystique has always fascinated me.  Having been to Memphis, TN several times in the past for business, you would like to think I would have made my way over to the ghett-o where his fabulous abode sits.  Unfortunately, I have yet to make that trek, but I am about to change all that this Memorial Day weekend.  Considering I am not the biggest Elvis music fan, I am however, the girl that always thought I would fly off to Las Vegas to get married by Elvis.  I just had this idea that a big wedding would be too much to take on and I am also a total spur of the moment type of gal.  So, even with planning ahead I always felt that the trip to Vegas and quick nuptials with an impersonator would be so much fun.  Alas, my husband to be had other plans and they included a nice sized wedding with all of our family and friends.  This is not something I regret at all and I still hear comments about how our wedding was one of the most fun times our friends have ever experienced.  Elvis, or no Elvis.

I am making a special scrapbook for this occasion and will be blogging the project after the trip.  More Kitsch Tackiness to come…..

Exhibit A: Really bad photo from our big day.  And, yes, among many colorful guests we did also have a moose at our Wedding.  ;0)
