Where I Get Verklempt...

This is the place where Elvis would play his piano and  sing his songs. During the tour we were told that the day Elvis died he was at this very piano singing one of his songs just like any other regular day.

I believe this was called the Records Room and was just so amazing to see all of the hit songs/albums Elvis made.

The Graceland Tour Lives On!

Wednesday, January 25, 2012 0 comments
So one week, or technically four days, definitely wasn't enough time to post all the photos I snapped during our tour of Graceland, so let the fun continue! Well it wasn't all fun, I'll admit there were times when I got a bit verklempt.

This is the part of Graceland that has all of Elvis's memorabilia plus all of his gold and platinum records.

Singers putting their name on beauty products is nothing new. Hello, Elvis lipstick and it was only $1!

Did you really think there wouldn't be shoes in at least one of these posts? ;-)

If I remember correctly this Gibson guitar is worth fifty thousand dollars!

Graceland Tour Continues...Beyond the House

Friday, January 20, 2012 1 comments
After we left the house and walked through the backyard we walked through the office, what used to be a firing range for Elvis and his friends and the stables that are still functional.

Elvis's Office. This is where all the fan mail would go to. And Elvis also had his own desk in the office.


My hubby would've loved to do this at our house!

Walking Through Elvis's Home

The Kitchen

Media Room. Back in the day, having three television sets was a big deal.

My hubby liked this room, I think mainly because it reminded him of his Steelers.

Pool Room. That fabric was draped everywhere and was also used to upholster the couch.

Our Visit to Graceland

Monday, January 16, 2012 1 comments
I finally finished going through the 200+ (yes I said 200) photos I took while we were on the tour of Graceland! We didn't get through the whole tour, we missed going to Fashion King (I think someone made me miss that one on purpose) and '68 Special and Sincerely Elvis, but if we ever make it back to Memphis we'd like to take Lil Seal with us and take him on the tour. I did go to the many gift shops and found some cute things and some things for the fam too. I've decided to make this a week long post since, yes, I did take that many pictures. Enjoy!

We were there during the holidays so Graceland was decked out for Christmas.

This is one of my favorites. Imagine Elvis sitting at the piano singing Christmas songs.


Anyone else have a "flocked" Christmas tree when they were little? We did. Brought back memories. 

Stair case that leads upstairs. No one was allowed upstairs.
