ROAD TRIP PART 3: MEMPHIS & THE KING OF ROCK'N'ROLL!
Our ultimate Memphis destination: GRACELAND! I LOOOOOVE Elvis. So this was a super exciting part of the trip.
And GRACELAND!!!! AMAZING! The place is insane even to today's standards. Elvis decorated the place like a true ROCK GOD. I love thinking about how he walked the same steps I did, checking out his game room and kitchen... the only part missing was the KING's thrown! Why was there no bathroom on the tour?!?!?
LONG LIVE THE KING!
....Baby let's play house!
THE LIVING ROOM
THE DINING ROOM
THE UPSTAIRS (we weren't allowed to view where all the real action happened!)
THE GAME ROOM...THE WALLS WERE COVERED WITH TRIPPY ORNATE BOHEMIAN FABRIC.
THE JUNGLE ROOM (my favorite- it was made into a recording studio at one point so the weird mossy green shag carpet covered the walls and ceiling too. Check out the WILD furnishing!)
CHECK OUT THE FURRY FURNITURE!
OH ELVIS, THATS DIIIIRTY! Big hunk O' love!
