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!

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)
