On our drive to Alabama, we stopped in Memphis for a tour of Graceland. It was nothing like what I expected.
Apparently, rich famous people in Elvis' day didn't live in the 10,000 square foot mansions, like they do today.

I mean, Graceland seemed like a fairly normal-size house. And the decor, well, it's straight out of the 70's.

Every room was different. There was the jungle room, with thick green shag, and crazy decor. Can you tell it was decorated in the 70's? (I had to laugh because on the audio tour, they kept emphasizing that each room was "professionally decorated"... in case you were wondering)

My two favorite rooms were the living room, with a mirrored wall and sleek white furniture; and the TV room done in bright yellow and navy blue. They were a little more timeless, and almost 40 years later, they're still cool.

I loved the TV room but the white monkeys were a little creepy. So glad you stopped! Did you go see the planes and jumpsuits too?
