Last year I spent Christmas in snowy New York City and Washington D.C. This year however, I spent it in Memphis for the first time in five years. I got lots of amazing gifts from my amazing friends and family. Thanks to everyone!!
And as soon as I’m not sick,
I’m going on a shopping (and eating) spree…
While in Memphis..
Kristen Deets (a friend since the 6th grade) was in town fron NYC
Spent time w/ my step-sister Roxanne who was in town from D.C.
(I totally stole this picture from you Rox)
Chilled w/ “Ryan Gosling” at the Hi-Tone
For the very few of you who don’t know about Graceland Too..
There’s this guy, Paul McLeod, who lives in Holly Springs, MS and is a complete Elvis FREAK. He has devoted his entire house to Elvis and gives tours of it 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. I’ve been twice before (once at 2 am on Easter). The tour lasts waaay too long at almost 2 hours. He gets going and just doesn’t stop talking. Almost everything that comes out of his mouth are obvious, random lies all dealing with celebrites and millions of dollars. All the while, his dentures are pretty much just dangling from his gums. The tour was complete with him singing Jail House Rock, dancing a little jig, and showing us his home-aid electric chair in the carport.
The gold suit he will be buried in:
Even the ceilings are coated in craziness.
He has pictures of everyone that’s ever taken the tour.
He likes TV?
Shaking his hips like Elvis.
Mom.. about to kill me for taking her there.
And what does an electric chair have to do with Elvis?
Last, but not least:
+ Happy Birthday to Todd (Dec. 23rd) & Michelle (today)!
+ Congrats to my best friend Kerri who got engaged to Joel right before Christmas!
+ Congratulations to Brandy & Dustin who also got engaged over the holiday!
