Saturday morning at 5am Jonny and I got up and drove to Graceland! This past weekend was a big deal at Graceland. Every August they have what ya call Elvis Week, a celebration on Elvis's life. I have never been able to go to this and there was no way just being a few hours from Memphis I was going to miss it this year! While there we joined thousand of other Elvis fans of all ages in celebrating Elvis Presley. Me, I did it all in my Elvis circle skirt, hehe! So, here a just a few of the pics Jonny took...
All morning and afternoon we hung out at Graceland and took it all in. Here I am sitting at the Elvis fashion exhibit. It's a room filled with Elvis's personal wardrobe! *sigh*
Later that evening Jonny and I headed down to Beale Street and enjoyed some southern cooking and listening to the sounds of the blues, being played everywhere! I even got sung to by a sweet gentlemen on the street! After Beale Street we headed up the block just a bit to the gorgeous Orpheum theater to see a special screening of Elvis On Tour.
The movie was amazing! The audience was reacting as if Elvis was really on stage! Screaming, crying, clapping and laughing. Me I was quite, keeping my eyes on the screen the entire time. Later they showed never before seen rehearsal footage which was AMAZING! Then last but not least Elvis's background gospel group The Stamps came on stage and sang three songs. I think the entire audience had tears in they're eyes. Me, I sobbed! Hehe.
This is a screen capture Jonny snapped for me from a home movie. I think it's so sweet!
I hope you enjoyed my little recap of our Elvis adventures.
I'll talk to you all very soon! I have a fun photo shoot happening tomorrow with a new blogger friend and Wednesday a post I've been very excited about! :o)
