Walking in Memphis

So the party was awesome. A complete surprise. My mom was SHOCKED and I have the photos to prove it (will upload later). The family was also very complimentary about the changes in mom's house (especially the bathroom) which made that last crazy week before they arrived totally worth the work.

The road trip was fabulous. We saw Carrie Underwood and others at the Grand Ole Opry. I don't know the others because I don't listen to country music, but the show was definitely a fun experience. Memphis is a wonderful city, and I got tons of great new decorating ideas during the Graceland tour. Well OK, not really, but the house was smaller and much less tacky than I had expected, and the downstairs bar was just kind of cool. The Sun Studio tour was definitely the highlight of the trip; I highly recommend it if you are ever in Memphis. One attraction I'm devastated we missed? Foamhenge in Virginia. Really- look at the link and wonder...

We got back into town about 45 minutes before the start of my 15 year high school reunion so that was an adventure (especially as two friends were bunking with me that night). Despite my driving fatigue, that party was also a blast and left me wishing for nothing but rest on Sunday. Needless to say, I'm behind on my Cure, but I have high hopes I can get back on track this week and finish with the group.
