A Day At Graceland!






Twirling for Elvis, hehe!

My buddy Joe!

Monday Jonny and I dove to Memphis for a day at Graceland! There we met with my dear friend Joe (he's like a grandpa to me!) and had a yummy lunch consisting of hamburgers, fries and milkshakes. Later Jonny and I took at stroll over to the Graceland! So, we took some pictures in front of the gate and browsed the gift shops. I bought some neat Elvis fabric to make a circle skirt, which I can't wait to get started on. We had so much fun, of course! And yeah, I admit I cried when we first drove by Graceland, hehe! :o)

How fun! You look so adorable in your green dress. I drove by Graceland once while on a roadtrip...I SO wanted to go tour it, but I was outnumbered by everyone else in the car so we didn't stop. Oh well! Maybe one day!

You looked fabulous, Q. Both the gorgeous green color of your dress as well as it's amazing shape (especially the back) are fantastic.
It must be such an experience visiting Graceland (but you've been before, haven't you?) especially for such an Elvis fan like yourself :)
