The King and I You.

It's Elvis' birthday today and I know you are all wondering how you can celebrate, so I've put together a few ideas.

If you cannot manage a quick flight over to Graceland in Memphis on such short notice, you can stay home and make fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches in Elvis' likeness.

Rent "Viva Las Vegas" and pretend you are Ann-Margret. Consider hyphenating your first and middle names and just deleting your last name.

Spray paint your Caddy gold.

You could go all out and get your hunka-hunka-burnin'-love over to the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel for your very own Doo Wop Wedding. Or you can begin your bedroom redo based on the specialness that is the Elvis and Priscilla Suite at the VLV Hotel:

Doesn't it look like a "While You Were Out" project?

Or you could call in sick and watch Elvis movies on TCM. Or click on this YouTube video of the Elvis '68 comeback special:



Nobody rocked the sideburns (and black leather) like the King, baby. Nobody.

I am going to find all the old Elvis movies to watch now (I think my favourite was 'Blue Hawaii') - thank you for the walk down memory lane, xv.

My husband and I got married at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. Our Elvis was wonderful and it was a fabulous ceremony. We have it on tape and watch it every once in awhile. Love Elvis.

And my birthday is tomorrow. What a great month is January!

I have no problem eating peanut butter and banana sandwiches, or spraypainting pretty much anything gold... no problem at all. Huh. Maybe I like Elvis.

Vicki - You never know where an Elvis lover is lurking...

Great wedding story, D. And Happy Birthday!!

Haha Erin! Maybe you are channeling Elvis. You can name your baby little E and spraypaint his/her crib gold (and by crib, I mean baby bed). :-)

P.S. D - I want pictures!!

He was so lovely pre-1969.

I'll see what I can find. I did love my lime-green wedding dress (it is my favorite color) and my husband's hawaiian shirt. We had a swell time.

Now that sounds like an Elvis chapel wedding.

I am a huge fan of Elvis, when I was a kid every saturday my sisters and I would watch old Elvis movies. Such a star, full of charisma. Carla x
