David Spotted on Oahu!

Of course I’m leading off with this story!  Pamela Pike is on vacation in Hawaii (this was news to me lol) and she was visiting a popular attraction – the Macadamia Nut Farm – which is a lot of fun and very interesting.  You may think that chocolate covered macadamia nuts might be the best thing featured there, but as Pam shares her story with us – nestled among the fragrance of plumeria and ginger they have something even sweeter on display!

Dear FOD,

Presently on vacation in Hawaii and with all the beauty around me I found something else I have always considered most beautiful, David Archuleta.  Sitting among the floral scented soaps and perfumes at the Macadamia Nut Farm were these pictures of David.

My thoughts immediately were to take these pictures and share with all of you and to remind us all no matter it seems where we go he is always with us in some way.  I always felt as fans we were the ones watching out for him but as time passes I do believe it is the other way around.

A conversation started with a couple of the employees and they were excited to tell me about his visit and how they enjoyed meeting him.  His pictures were placed in an area of honor with other people of importance who had visited their farm.

It was an end to a long and beautiful day exploring the Island of Oahu but stumbling upon David in the process was a candy coated delight.

Now back to exploring the Island of Oahu!

Thanks Pam for sharing this amazing story with us!  I would be lying if I said this didn’t tug at my heart, remembering that David was actually here – visiting the tourist attractions and getting to know the Islands and the people – all together now:

WE MISS YOU DAVID!

TOSOD Weekend Celebration!

TOSOD is such an amazing album that it deserves a whole weekend of celebration!  Fans have weighed in on their favorite songs from the album, and as predicted – we love ALL the songs!  Every single song was mentioned at least once as being someone’s favorite, and many songs received multiple mentions!  Since it’s Saturday, and we have a little more time to spend watching vids, I’m going to take the liberty to post a vid of each song from the album – any objections?  I didn’t think so lol!

    Jackryan4DA ‏@jackryan4DA
    Or this smile? And those eyes?

  3. Martha says:

    Good Morning! Thanks Kalei for the great post with all the videos! I love TOSOD – listen to it and BEGIN. all the time!

    So happy for Gladys being given permission to attend the October 13 concert in Chile. :) Apparently there are still taking reservations and its just a week away. ?)

    Jackryan4DA ‏@jackryan4DA
    How can you not miss this face? http://www.thedavidchronicles.com/wp-content/uploads/MKOP-07-1024×610.png

  5. cq#DA2014 says:

    Awesome Saturday post Kalei, mucho thks.

  6. Lucy says:

    Good morning! Thank you for using one of my favorite pics for one of the leads! Awesome! I just watched the Good Place/Let it Be up close vid, oh my gravy, I could listen to that voice all day. He puts so much into every song and it just makes you feel so good, we all miss David but with these wonderful vids to watch and pics to gaze at, he is never far:) have a good day everyone!

  7. lct#DA2014 says:

    So does he or does he not have green eyes! :)

  8. LCT – sometimes they are green, sometimes light brown, sometimes darker — the “curse” of hazel eyes :)

  9. kmb says:

    Thanks everyone fir the kind words about my brother’s mission call. I am excited that he’s staying in the States, but I would have been excited no matter what because I knew in my heart that it was in the Lord’s hands. I may post tidbits here and there about how my brother’s mission is going. I don’t think we’re going to do a blog. One thing at a time though haha.

    Elysian – You’re welcome. It is a great read and that’s why I shared it.

    Josie – Yes, he’ll still be home for Thanksgiving. We’re not sure exactly what day he’s flying out, but it will definitely be after Thanksgiving.

    ksf – Wow, that’s so cool that you live there! How’s the weather usually? Isn’t it really hot and humid? I put an Atlanta weather gadget on my desktop just for fun.

    Bychance – Just curious, are you LDS? You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to. I’ve been a member my whole life.

  10. Martha says:

    jackryan and lct – my daughters eyes are the same. When she went to renew her drivers license, she asked them what color eyes did they think she had because different people say she has a different color. It depends alot on the light and what she is wearing, sometimes green, hazel, light brown as you say.

  11. LCT – to be exact and if I remember correctly, David’s eyes are light brown near the pupil but golden green on the iris’ outer part

  12. HAPPY SATURDAY!

    Kalei what an AMAZING POST….. filled to the brim with so many Davd goodies…and the pics are to die for! Every picture posted I think that’s the BEST picture of David I ever saw…until the NEXT POST! KEEP those pics coming! Thanks to all for sharing them…..he is Mr Photogenic!

    I have hazel eyes….and they do change color. lol

    ENJOY YOURDAY GUYS! Family, friends, food and FOD! :)

  13. lct#DA2014 says:

    Jackryan,
    The times I met him – they were green – guess he made sure they stayed green for me! LOL!

  14. Martha says:

    Kari Sellards‏@kariontour

    Always concentrate on how far you have come, rather than how far you have left to go. The difference in how easy … http://m.tmi.me/xMuIy

  15. kimk says:

    have no clue what color his eyes are in person.. can’t say I ever looked at him straight in the eyes.

  16. Martha says:

    Translation:

    We saw @davidarchie stopped with his umbrella waiting for the micro, when we were in the car @PerfeectRainbow

    (25 minutes ago)

  18. kimk says:

    what is a micro?

  19. Martha says:

    kimk – don’t know. Maybe some sort of transportation. :?

  20. kimk says:

    Martha thanks.. aww hope he doesn’t get too wet.

  21. Martha says:

    kimk – this is the girl that took that first picture we saw of David at the July 15 concert. Notice the name on the pic:

  23. kimk says:

  24. Martha says:

    kimk – I hear ya…

    dreams can become reality

  25. Bychance says:

    Kalei – what a beautiful post. Thank you!

    kmb – yes, I am happy to tell you I am Mormon……know it, live it, love it!

    Hope everyone has a good day! I think David is! Also, so happy for Gladys!

  26. Good morning every one. Good to be back, been busy with grandsons activities.
    MICRO is a transpotation bus, or even a taxi. But i think its the first one.
    Great Post Kalei. I love watching all those video. OMJ, this fansite is the best.
    Oh! My son and 2 of my grandsons have hazel eyes, and they do change depends on the light. Thank you to all the fans that take these videos for us. I’ve never seen him live.
    That is my biggest wish. But what you all do to bring all these videos and pics to us is so awesome. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  27. Forgot to say that The i 0n MICRO is has the e sound . In case you to learn how to pernounce it.

  28. sorry for mistakes, i hope you understood it.

  29. angelbymyside says:

    Hi everyone :)

    Love the post today Kalei. Thank you!

    It’s a gorgeous day here today but rain moving in tomorrow and going to get cold!

    I wonder if the girls who saw David waiting for his transportation, happened to yell out of the car window….. “hi Elder Archuleta” ????? ;) hehe

  30. ABMS, thats a good question. Wonder how they reacted on seeing our Elder DavidArchie?

  31. angelbymyside says:

    Linda ~ Maybe they just waved to him??? Would be interesting to know how people react to him if they happen to run into him outside of a church setting.

  32. ksf says:

    Hi guys! Hope everyone’s enjoying this beautiful Saturday! :)

    lct – thanks for your Pinterest comment! :) I’m a pinning fool…sooo addicted. But, there are some great ideas. Love it.

    kmb – Atlanta has very hot/humid summers but generally we have four seasons. People are surprised that it actually can get cold in the Winter, though last year was pretty mild. Where is your family from?

  33. Ksf, Hi! Beautiful day here in Cali too. My daughter discovered pinterest and she loved it. Don’t know if she has gotten involved in it yet, will have to ask her.

  34. kmb says:

    Bychance – I totally thought of posting that on FOD right after Sister Dibb’s talk. I was nervous about doing it though and, of course, I didn’t do it during the session. You just did, so I’m going to as well. “I’m a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it.”

    Another way we can mark David’s mission time is by how many General Conferences will happen while he is gone. One of four is underway :)

  35. ksf says:

    Hi Linda! Yeah Pinterest is fun. Once you get started you’re pretty much hooked! Hope you’re enjoying your day. I’m actually in NC for the weekend visiting family and the weather is just fantastic here too.

    Anyways, family time is calling. Hopefully BBL :)

  36. cq#DA2014 says:

    Love this site, but I hope it doesn’t become more about religion than David, the singing artist.

  37. josie says:

    kmb~Tks. That’s good that he’ll still be with you for the holiday. cq~:):):)

  38. josie says:

    Dagnabit. Let me try that again….cq~:):)

  39. josie says:

    ‘K. So I guess that’ll be a black sideways smiley face. lol.

  40. josie says:

    cq- lolol. Can’t say I didn’t try, at least.

  41. cq#DA2014 says:

    Josie, good effort and good job, a lot more than I could ever do.
    Rainbow MV….please be light, fun and with sexy, dancing David throughout the whole video….please come soon…we need you, lol!

  42. kimk says:

    cq lol maybe the others but sexy!? not with the dippy doo thing going on!!

  43. tami lyn says:

    omg that’s awesome! LOL

  44. cc halo says:

    He looks like Cat Stevens in that beard photo.

  45. kimk says:

    http://youtu.be/aL8Z-iP1Peg

    McKenzie Harris ‏@McKenzieHarr
    Camera phones light up as soon as @davidarchie appears at 1:18 lol! Mr & Mrs A & David Archuleta sing Nandito Ako

  46. kimk says:

    cchalo lol now that is funny.

  47. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimk, what do you mean dippy doo?

  48. kmb says:

    cq – If that comment was directed at me, I am sorry to have rubbed you the wrong way. In my mind, the fans have “gotten over” the religious aspects of David’s mission and there has been a lot less religious discussion of late. This site has become like family to me, so I was merely sharing a joyful thing in my life. It had nothing to do with forcing my religion on anyone. I still see the site as David-centric. Maybe I won’t post about my brother’s mission here after all.

  49. cc halo says:

    kimk and cq — Rainbow MV is the “Bob’s Big Boy” look. Not sexy.

    cq, kmb — I like to hear about what David’s doing as a missionary, just minus the religious slogans. (Or maybe we should all post our church’s slogans here ;) .

  50. cq#DA2014 says:

    No, Kmb it was in reply to Kimk @4:32 pm. Kmb you have every right to post whatever you want, it was I that needed to not post that comment, sorry to anyone that took offense.

  51. kimk says:

    lol.. Bob’s Big Boy or a Wish Nik!!

  52. tami lyn says:

    cc halo~ omg “big boy” that’s it! i’ve been trying to figure out who or what david reminded me of in that vid! hilarious and true! LOL! :)

  53. kimk says:

    don’t care about sexy.. a happy, fun and a boppy David ftw!!

  54. cq#DA2014 says:

    Oh, cchalo, lol, the bobs big boy doo, yeah, it’s a little dorky, but with his sexy moves, I can forget about it, lol.

  55. Kimk, thank you for the NA video with Regina, Ogie, David. I hadn’t seen that version of it. I’ts one that shows the reaction of the audience the lights light up when David comes on.. I loved it.

  56. Maybe his hair looks different from different angels. We just see it from the side? MAYBE!!

  57. josie says:

    So…hm.

  58. tami lyn says:

    how can david be so dorky one minute and so sexy/sophisticated the next? it’s like he’s magical creature from another land LOL! can’t really make sense of anything he does or is

  59. kimk says:

    lol well it is good he has hair.. think the vid will be great
    just guessing won’t be the likes of NeYo or Enrique is all.
    ha whateven.

  60. cc halo says:

    cq – I thought your comment at 3:23 was perfect, and not at all unkind.

  61. kimk says:

    tamilyn lol true that.. good thing too.

  62. tami lyn says:

    david could come back a completely different person. he could be even more conservative/religious or he could renounce the mormon religion and leave the church. anything and everything is possible.

  63. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ yeah lol! and it makes me wonder? are we all like that and just don’t know cuz our every move and look is not be captured by the camera? it’s really weird to think about! lol

  64. kimk says:

    tamilyn/glitter girl lol your Sybil is showing.
    guess anything can happen with David. just hope whatever may come he still wants to sing. miss his voice terribly!!

  65. kimk says:

    glitter girl David is unique.

  66. glitter*girl says:

    u know what else is super weird? how can a person look great in one mirror/lighting and then hideous in a different mirror/lighting? it’s like being pretty and ugly at the same time. am i the only one who thinks about this stuff? lol! there is one mirror in my house where my skin looks flawless and hair smooth and shiny and then another mirror where my hair looks all frizzy/dark roots and my face/makeup looks awful. wth?!

  67. glitter*girl says:

    LOL! mozilla firefox really wants me to be glitter girl for some reason

  68. Tami-lyn, glitter girl, David is coming back to singing. Repeat after me. DAVID IS COMING BACK TO SINGING!!! LOL!

  69. glitter*girl says:

    linda~ i do believe he will sing again!!! LOL! it’s the other stuff i was referring to~ religion, marriage etc.

  70. josie says:

    kmb~ (5:36 pm) For me, at least, it’s a little (OK, alot) more complicated than that. lol. It’s great that he’s staying in the US and you get to spend Thanksgiving with him, though. :) tami lyn~ I don’t even know what to say. lol.

  71. glitter*girl says:

    josie~ hahaha! thanks ok :)

  72. tami lyn says:

    oops! i meant~ that’s ok :) apolo was distracting me LOL

  73. kmb says:

    cq 5:47 PM – Thank you for your response. I just wanted to make sure because you can never quite tell just from just what’s typed. I never mean to offend anyone by what I say here. I try to frame my comments in the kindest way possible. I wasn’t offended by your comment, but I was nervous that I had offended you, and it made me stop and think about what I post here. Kinda like, I’ll keep the “religious stuff” to myself and only share the fun/entertaining/informative things. That’s what I was going to do anyway, but your comment solidified it for me. Thank you for sharing your perspective.

  74. Tami-lyn, glittergirl OH! OK!

  75. kimk says:

    tamilyn think the reason he is separating his career from what he is doing now with what is pretty much a total blackout says to me he will come back to going for a somewhat mainstream career? at least I sure hope so!!

  76. kmb says:

    josie – :) It’s ok that it’s more complicated for you. We all process things differently and deal with things in our own way.

  77. josie says:

    tami lyn~ No no no no no no. Haven’t you heard…the first rule of Archudom is…(1) No division of loyalties. :) :)

  78. tami lyn says:

    sorry josie, no can do!haha! i need a main hottie(david) , a default hottie(apolo), an artsy arrogant hottie(john mayer) , an ultimate dream man hottie who is completely unattainable(michael buble) and a hottie who i could actually love in real life(gavin degraw). there are more but u get the idea LOL! :)

  79. ray says:

    i see we have two new internet police here today,talking about your fam.doesnt bother me

  80. cc halo says:

    kimk @ 6:31 — I think you’re exactly right. I’ve been disappointed that he hasn’t communicated much at all, despite intimating that he might be able to, but it can be more of a clean break for him this way–at both start and finish.

  81. cc halo says:

    Hey ray — nobody at all has objected to hearing about family. Where did you get that?

  82. cq#DA2014 says:

    tami, @5:58, to me a man can be dorky and sexy, but I’m only speaking for myself.

  83. glitter*girl says:

    cq~ oh i agree! i like the combination of dorky and sexy. it’s so sweet & lovable!

  84. blue says:

    i love that video of david singing nandito ako. he sounds so good.

  85. josie says:

    tami lyn~Dorky AND sexy. See? You’re not gonna get both in Apollo. :)

  86. mango says:

    My personal opinion is that I don’t really care what people talk about on this website. I like reading anything and everything that is said. The religious stuff is very insightful at times and I hope nobody feels as if they have to censor themselves in any way. My opinion. If someone posts something I’m not interested in, I just move on to the next comment. But, frankly, that doesn’t happen much. I’m interested in 99% of what is said.

  87. josie says:

    I feel like I have to censor myself half the time, tbh. lol.

  88. ray says:

    cc read your own posts,because you replyed to me i am shur you know to whom i was refering

  89. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Mango, could not have said it better myself. Remember we are a “family” we should want to hear whatever each of us wants to share.

  90. mango says:

    It will be a very long year and a half if we can’t talk about certain things. But, I think we should be able to more openly discuss mission information, too, but that’s just me. I love reading the mission stuff.

  91. glitter*girl says:

    josie~ au contraire lol! i watched some vids of apolo and he can be very goofy and dorky! LOL same story with gavin! that must be my type~ sexy goofy dorks! omg LOL :)

  92. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Anyone interested in another ATX poll?

    If David were to release 5 songs that were NOT on already released, what songs would you want.

  93. kimk says:

    agree about being able to discuss the mission stuff..

  94. kimk says:

    ATX but how would we know what was not ever released? I would go with whatever Eman and LadyV have.. like the way they are light, happy and fun with their music.
    nice quality recording too.

  95. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hello Everyone! Burrrr, its going to get down to the mid to upper 20′s tonight here in the Twin Cities, hope you all are having wonderful weather where you are :grin:

  96. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Kimk, sorry should have specified it could be songs that were “leaked”, just ones that were not on an album.

  97. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Beth, 50 degrees in Central Texas

  98. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Kimk, yea wonder what songs got bumped off of TOSOD for Good Place, Falling Stars and Elevator?

  99. kimk says:

    ATX I am in the opinion we should have them ALL! lol like right now!!

  100. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey ATX! 50 sounds nice. It looks like we’re going to have highs in the 50′s & 60′s this coming week, but, in MN, it can be 40 one day, 75 the next, then back to 40, this time of year,lol. You dont know whether to wear shorts or a parka, sometimes you wear both, at the same time :lol: quite a sight :grin:

  101. kimk says:

    I would think that since David is gone.. to keep his name out there his team would be releasing some old ‘stuff’ too?
    didn’t he do some recording with Sunny.
    also LadyV mentioned there was a great song that was never released.

  102. kimk says:

    maybe that is what the Matt Clayton pics are for? hopes!!

  103. glitter*girl says:

    beth~ yeah it was 75 here last tues, then by thurs it was 35, windy and power went out! crazy!

  104. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Beth! How about shorts, parka and cowboy boots? That is the style here in Texas!!

  105. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey kimk! I agree, take any songs they want to share with us :grin:

  106. glitter*girl says:

    beth~ i’ve been wearing my winter coat since last thursday! lol

  107. glitter*girl says:

    my friend up in roseau MN was without power all day thursday and part of friday and 10+ inches of snow!

  108. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Kimk, maybe David selected some songs before he left to release. Maybe that is his Christmas present to us. Wouldn’t that be great!

  109. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    glitter*girl, yeah, crazy isnt it, like they say in MN, if you dont like the weather, just wait a minute. Gosh, your power went out?

    ATX, you sure are stylin’ in Texas,lol. Its funny, here in MN, when its 35 in March, people are out walking & their in shorts, its like, go away winter, go away, any glimpse of spring & people go all goofy :grin:

  110. kimk says:

    :D

    lol watch out David!!

    Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain.. color CRUSH!!

    http://www.amazon.com/Revlon-Bitten-Kissing-Stain-Crush/dp/B0082D69H0

  111. kimk says:

    ATX EEEP at the thought!!!

  112. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    glitter*girl, 10 inches of snow? I new it snowed up there, which is actually a good thing, its been so dry up north, but, gosh, 10 inches,lol. I was thinking about the Halloween blizzard, that was something, 3 feet of snow :shock:

  113. tami lyn says:

    beth~ the 10 inches was just in the NW corner, thank God ! it did not get to us (near duluth). i was very happy about that! all we got was a trace :) and yeah it’s so weird, now when it’s 35 it’s like freezing but like u say in the spring when it hits 35 people are in the streets in shorts all excited cuz the snow is melting! LOL!

  114. Martha says:

    If anyone is interested at this point – the definition of the “micro” David was waiting for in the rain:

    La Micro = this is what the local buses within a city are called.

    - Voy a tomar la micro en la esquina. (I’m going to take the bus on the corner)

    http://www.southamerica.cl/Chile/Santiago/Local_Buses.htm

  115. Hi! Beth i’m in Cali, still very nice here.
    ATX, i just love Senseless and i’m not sure of the rest, Oh yeah PandA. and the one that Pam Pike and him wrote forgot the name.

  116. donna says:

    I would like to hear David sing that song he wrote with Matt Wertz.

  117. josie says:

    ATX (8:00) -I would be all for that goal. But this isn’t your typical family, I guess. lol. Right now, for instance, I have some thoughts….but they’re just going to stay in my head, ‘cuz I know what happens when they don’t. lol.

  118. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    tami_lyn, I’m getting whiplash from your name changes :lol: Yeah, I know in the fall people dress warm in the spring, they wear shorts :roll:

    Hey Linda! Glad to hear you have nice weather. I do love fall, but it just feels Chile tonight,lol.

    Hey Martha! thanks for the info :grin:

  119. Martha says:

  120. ATX #DA2014 says:

  121. ATX #DA2014 says:

    Donna – yes!

  122. Janel aka Nellie says:

    The pouty face picture of David, is there a video of it?

  123. josie says:

    ATX- Thanks, but that’s OK. Maybe some other time. :)

  124. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Martha :lol:

  125. blue says:

    oh my gosh donna i loved that song. forgot about that one. what was it called again?

  126. blue says:

    oh wait. it was called best behavior

  127. kimk says:

    Martha thanks.. think there is also a pic of David on one of those somewhere.

  128. kimk says:

    blue we ever hear David’s version?

  129. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Going to go crawl under the covers &
    watch tv :grin:

  130. Blue, thats the one i was talking about. BEST BEHAVIOR.

  131. Martha says:

    ATX – another unreleasesd song, David said he wanted on the album. If I Could Only Be – wish I could hear a studio version:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k__z8350Khg&feature=related

  132. josie says:

    I don’t keep up with the unreleased songs. *bad fan*

  133. MunkFOD says:

    Hi guys!!! Here’s Matt singing Best Behavior! :D There are so many songs in the vault! Hope to hear them all someday!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ija6GOy6F6o

    Have a wonderful evening!

  134. Janel aka Nellie says:

    QUESTION: Pouty faced David, is there a video of it? I think Kimk shared the picture this morning.

  135. kimk says:

    nice song..

    Matt Wertz Best Behaviour

    http://youtu.be/Ija6GOy6F6o

  136. kimk says:

    Janel I think that is from A Thousand Miles Bench performance? lol he forgot how to play the piano in a part?

  137. kimk says:

    Munk ha psyche!!

  138. Janel aka Nellie says:

    He was wearing a different shirt in the Bench performance Kimk. Hmmm….I know I’ve seen a video of that, that’s why it’s bugging me.

  139. kimk says:

    Janel got me.. one heck of a great pic though!

  140. Bychance says:

    Oh dear…I have a feeling it was me. I have never brought up my religion before…..was answering others questions, but wish I hadn’t. I hate there being any hurt, offended feelings or discomfort on this wonderful sight and to think I might have been the cause of some…….well, I feel so badly and am sorry. Broke my own rule about fan sites, dang it!

  141. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Evening everyone. Just got in from MD. There no place like home. I love the pics and vids today Kalei . TOSD is a great album. David dd a great job letting us know who he is and what he’s about.

    tami lyn & Glitter*Girl Your choice in men is extremly terrific. I folow Apolo and he sends such cute pictures of him and Karina. He is sexy and goofy. Nice personality and real good to look at. (cough). All your choices would certainly make one heck of MKOP.

  142. glitter*girl says:

    sgj~ thankyou! :) yes i do have excellent taste in my fantasy men unlike my real life boyfriends! lol i always fall for the cocky jerks!

  143. MunkFOD says:

    LOL!!! KIM! jinx! :D

    I bet when David gets back he’s going to be great at finishing all those songs he was working on! and I bet he has tons of new melodies and lyrics running thru his head… and in his journal! So excited! Great times ahead!

  144. cc halo says:

    Bychance – That’s okay. I think we were doing great, but some like to call names and stir things up. They go on other sites and do it too. It really wasn’t you.

  145. That pouty face was from the Nandito Ako Fan promo they had with Jasmine and Eula, remember he knew the body parts in talago. He hot a wrong key and he made a face. I don’t know if it was in the mall. He wore a pink t shirt.

  146. MunkFOD says:

    just thinkin…. all that humid weather and resting of the voice… sounds awesome to me!

  147. glitter*girl says:

    my real life BFs have been more like chris brown. i think that’s why i love david. he is so nice and would never intentionally hurt anyone :)

  148. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    WOW….Pamela Pike must have been in 7th Heaven to find David pics at the Macadamia Nut Farm in Hawaii….What a find!!!…And I have to say how I love David singing Elevator at Z100….so so sexy ( in a modest, Mormon kind of way that is!!!!)……..Miss Vicki

  149. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn & glitter*girl Ha Ha Ha :lol:

  150. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- Hi , You know your David stuff right down to the color shirt he was wearing. I love it. You are very observant.

  151. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn My :lol: was for comment at 9:36p.m. not the comment at 9:42p.m.

  152. cc halo says:

    I should ignore him, I know, but when people have respectfully stated their opinions and had a very nice conversation, it’s disturbing to have someone blow in and call people names. In case it wasn’t clear, I’m looking forward to hearing a family missionary story.

  153. glitter*girl says:

    sgj~ oh yeah i figured. thanks for clarifying though! lol :)

  154. Hi! Sgj…. When i don’t have plans with my family, i watch a lot of Davids videos. remember i live alone and they kinda keep me company. Did you get my DM messages. Just wondered, don’t have to reply.

  155. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Well it’s time to say Goodnight. Really tired from the trip. Goodnight everyone see you tomorrow. Love you all. Sweet dreams dear David.

  156. josie says:

    Um, guys, if I say something honestly about the “r” word…do you promise not to eat me alive? lol.

  157. glitter*girl says:

    what’s the “r” word??lol

  158. josie says:

    tami lyn- lolol. I should’ve just said it. “R-e-l-i…”. That one.

  159. kimk says:

    Miss Vicki lol sexy and mormon.. love that Elevator. David should of released it that way.

  160. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- I know you watch a lot of David’s videos. I think it’s great. Yes I got your DM. Did we trend last night or not? Somehow that trend seemed backwards to me. Must be me! :grin:

  161. Good night everyone, Goodnight David stay healthy and safe.

  162. mango says:

    josie, I promise not to eat you alive. Say it.

  163. tami lyn says:

    josie~ oh i should have been able to figure that out lol! i’m always interested in what u have to say.

  164. cc halo says:

    Josie, there’s only one poster that would eat you alive, the rest of us would love to hear your opinions. They’re always kind and respectful.

  165. Candy says:

    OHMYGOSH -ON HGTV the realtor is showing a house in MURRAY, UTAH! I cant escape!! LOL

  166. JANEL – the pouty look comes from his 1st Nandito Ako Mall Tour, while prepping for MKOP

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANbSpHk0-x8

    I comes around 1:20 mark

  167. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hi kimk….I agree…if David would have released Elevator the way he sang it on Z100 it would have gone to the top of the charts!!!!!! Miss Vicki

  168. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Candy…What is HGTV????? What channel is it and what does the house look like in Murray, Utah?????

  169. Candy says:

    Woo-Hoo they picked the house in Murray! They’re Davids new neighbors!! Well, when he comes back that is!!

  170. Donna from NY says:

    Love the Post! Have a great night!

  171. Candy says:

    Hi Miss Vicki- House/Garden TV Network, they travel to different cities with families looking to buy a new home. I love the show. I get to see places all over the world I will never get to see!

  172. cq#DA2014 says:

    Go for it Josie!

  173. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Linda, found it, thanks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nJ2edKeG9o The pout is at :43, the song is MKOP.

  174. josie says:

    Thanks. I’m working on it. lol.

  175. JANEL – just got lucky I was zooming in when he made the pout. That’s how I got the pouty pix :)

  176. Candy says:

    JR- Please dont ever stop spoiling us with all of your great videos and pictures! :)

  177. Martha says:

    ***MISSIONARY PIC WE’VE ALREADY SEEN***

    From Centro Jas Rancagua website, a little clearer (what a SHORT haircut :? )

    http://www.facebook.com/centrojas.rancaguachile#!/photo.php?fbid=280944782022509&set=pb.100003209695933.-2207520000.1349581304&type=1&theater

  178. Martha says:

    Love that little notebook in his pocket :) :)

  179. Candy says:

    Thanks Martha-So not loving the buzzzzz haircut! it makes Brooke scissorhands cut look good!

  180. Martha says:

    Candy – maybe he figures ‘I’ll get a short cut now so I won’t have to get one for 6 months’ lol jk

  181. Candy says:

    Martha-LOL-I would love that! Long and lush!

  182. JR thank you for zooming in. Great shot. He’s a cutie even when he goofs.

  183. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Ok….the buzz cut is growing on me….He looks so so serious…..like he is on a Mission and he means business!!!! I just love David James Arhculeta and his little notebook in his pocket…..Miss Vicki

  184. Miss Vicky i agree with you comment at10:57

  185. LINDA – His skin is really something else! To die for. He must share his secret

  186. josie says:

    Mango~ Well, tks, but others still might want to. lol..M-kay. Many yrs ago, I met an LDS gal for the first time. Her very first words were: “I’m not discussing religion.” So I didn’t. And yet, she spent the next 5 hrs proudly telling me all about hers…the mission, the temple, the bishop, showing pics of Joseph Smith, telling me “You should be Mormon.” Sooo….the subject was OK for her to discuss, but it wasn’t OK for me. The message I got loud & clear: “The things that I live for matter; the things that you live for don’t.”

    Sometimes I get that feeling here, too, tbh. The door swings both ways. Even though you might not see it this way, by talking about missions, elders, etc., technically you’re sharing part of your faith- parts of your life that are meaningful to you- and assuming peeps will understand how you feel &..magically be on board with that. lol. So…by the same token, I hope you’re willing to listen to non-LDSers who do the same…who share parts of their lives that are most meaningful to them…even though you won’t jump on board. And even though you might not understand.

    *Sigh.* Did I do OK?

  187. tami lyn says:

    well said josie! i agree! :)

  188. Candy says:

    josie-you did fine, I get what you’re saying…I try really hard to steer away from the religion aspect of conversations. If you read the mission blogs the whole purpose to a mission is to convince non believers that they need to change. Its what David does 24/7…talk religion to people. That last sentence to your comment IS what they believe. “The things that I live for matter; the things that you live for don’t.” It comes down to how an individual sees it…me , I dont take it personally…Im Catholic, was raised Catholic and will die a Catholic…but that isnt what determines how I see others.

  189. Lucy says:

    I’m from MN too, I live in east central MN and the weather is cold! Just a few days ago it was 75 degrees and the last two days its been in the forties! Also to throw my two cents in, I don’t mind hearing mission stuff either, it’s nice to get any kind of update, good nite all.

  190. mango says:

    josie, I think you did fine. I do understand how you feel. I think (in my opinion) it all comes down to the fact that the person we’re interested in and love just happens to be on a mission for the Mormon church. That changes a lot of our perspective about what we want to hear about. I does mine, anyway. I don’t know if that made any sense at all. The Mormon religion is very much David-related at this time, so some of us don’t mind reading comments about it. Others do mind, I guess. Who knows how I would feel if David wasn’t on a mission.

  191. Candy says:

    Joise- Sorry hit the send button before I finished…I do agree 100% with you, the door does swing both ways and for the most part its all good. I appreciate you and everyone expressing their thoughts, opinions as long as they arent personal attacks.

  192. tami lyn says:

    hi lucy! always awesome to see another minnesota fan here! yay :)

  193. mango says:

    *It does mine*

  194. Candy says:

    Hi ILOVELUCY! Same drastic weather change here…high of 83 today, 53 tomorrow. Time to get out my David hoodies! :)

  195. cq#DA2014 says:

    Josie, well said and I agree.

  196. tami lyn says:

    goodnite u guys, see u tomorrow

  197. Candy says:

    Well time to hitch up my pumpkin and head off to dream about Prince Charming and his music! Good Night All.

  198. Kristi says:

    Josie- I don’t post often, but wanted to comment on what you wrote. I don’t think you should ever worry about saying what you want to say! You have always been kind and respectful (at least in the comments I’ve read) and thats all that matters! I’m sorry that you had such a bad experience with your friend. I’ve had a similiar experience before (not with an lds person) and understand how frustrating it can be! I think the key is being confident in your own beliefs and sometimes changing the way we look at what people truly are saying.

  199. cc halo says:

    Very well said. For me, I like hearing about missionary work because of David’s involvement, and because it sure is different than the usual religion. But I get sensitive when it starts sounding like we’re being proselytized, or told how much happier Mormons are (yes, I heard that here a while ago).

    I very much appreciate kmb’s promise to share the “fun/entertaining/informative things” and not the religious aspect.

  200. cc halo says:

    Martha and Candy — Maybe with that short haircut he’s trying to look less attractive so the girls won’t grab him and try to kiss him anymore, lol.

  201. Miss Vicki DA #2014 says:

    cc halo…..I think he is attractive even with that short cut….The girls will flock to him no matter what….Night all…..Miss Vicki

  202. Bychance says:

    Candy…can I just say that the things that I live for matter, and the things that you live for matter…….and that’s the truth.

  203. josie says:

    Tks, guys. I know there’s always a chance of hurting someone’s feelings, so please forgive me if I do. Mango~ Yeah, I agree. If David wasn’t doing what he’s doing, all this stuff would probably never come up. I guess I wasn’t referring so much to David’s mission, since that’s pretty much all we CAN talk about (thanks, D, for leaving us hangin’. j/k. Love ya, buddy. :) Although a Rainbow MV would be nice :) )

    Candy- David gets to talk 24/7? Well, that should be right up his alley, then. lol.

    Kristi- Thank you!! Ya know, delurkers are always welcome. Well, lurkers are, too. That came out wrong.

    I’m spent. Good night.

  204. Bychance says:

    cc halo…I wasn’t trying to say a church slogan……that was a little personal joke between kmb and I …….and she didn’t really get it anyway soooo, won’t do that again.

  205. josie says:

    Bychance~ Hi. lol.

  206. Bychance says:

    cq…I was just trying to answer your question about mission applicants. Sorry if it was more than you wanted to know.

  207. cc halo says:

    That’s okay, Bychance. The “Mormons are happier” comment wasn’t from anyone here.

  208. cq#DA2014 says:

    Bychance, yes, I know you answer my question and I appreciated the answer and thanked you. My comment @3:23 was said not by that answer or by any David related mentions, spotting etc. I think you know now what prompted the comment, I did apologize to those that took offense. I just hope we can move on.

  209. Bychance says:

    Josie…your first meeting with lds girl sounds pretty awful, and shouldn’t happen……I guess well meaning members sometimes go wayyyyy overboard and don’t know when to stop. I feel badly that happened to you. No one would want that. Also, like I said to Candy, the things that matter to you ARE important. I don’t think the M church wants to change you so much as it want take what you already have and love in your religion and see if they can add to that.
    And then there are many people who are just floundering, unhappy with nothing guiding their lives who are searching and praying for help. Those are people whom David would be trying to help……only if they ask for it. They are mostly talking to those who seek them out because they feel something is missing in their lives, and want to kmow more about the church. David is NOT going around pushing religion down people’s throats, or trying to change them of anything. He simply states what we believe, asks people to pray about it and get their own answer about what is right for them. Ok I can get off my soapbox now.

  210. josie says:

    Bychance~ Hope you know I wasn’t directing my thoughts at you, kmb, or anyone in particular, so PLEASE don’t be sorry, OK?…You have to understand my thought process. When it comes to certain things, I may wait for yeaaaaars to post. lol. So there may have been yeeeeears of experiences building up to that point, maybe even before you were born. lol. And I’ll see one little word that triggers my brain that day: “Aha! I think I’ll mention this now.” Then…just like that, I’m ready to move on. lol.

    I never said my brain made sense. :)

  211. cq#DA2014 says:

    Bychance, I think that statement applies to all religions.

  212. josie says:

    Bychance~ Tks. Nothing needs to be added, though. Already found what/who was missing in my life. :) Seriously, it’s really late where I am. So….I need to go. ‘Night.

  213. Bychance says:

    Well…..thanks for listening. And sorry for stirring the pot without meaning to. I love coming here and would rather not stop, but maybe it is time to do more lurking. I know you guys got along perfectly fine without me for four years for heavens sakes!

    Goodnight Josie, cq, cchalo Candy….sweet David dreams.

  214. cq#DA2014 says:

    Bychance, please continue commenting, David needs all his fans to stay active. Let’s just agree to disagree at times and move on.

  215. cc halo says:

    We’re all so different. I think I’ve shared before that looking into David’s church was one of the things that led me and my family away from religion altogether, ironically, (and happily). I’m still so impressed with David and LDS youngsters who give up so much to help out their church.

  216. Elysian says:

    Bychance- PLEASE continue commenting here!!!!! I love the positivity, humor and kindness that that is characteristic of all of your comments. I have truly enjoyed reading everything that you have posted here, and I always look forward to reading what you have to say. You are one of the vibrant new voices that have added so much to the ongoing conversations that have kept this site fun and interesting, even during David’s absence. This site is special, primarily because of the wonderful people who post here, and that it includes YOU. If you return to lurkdom, you will be depriving the rest of us of your perspective and thoughts, and that would truly be a loss. Sooo….please keep commenting, squeeing and laughing, right along with the rest of us as we wait for David to return. This place wouldn’t be the same without you! :smile:

  217. Elysian says:

    Bychance- By the way, thank you for answering the question on yesterday’s thread. Please don’t regret posting it. I am not LDS, and I have my own religion, but I am interested in all other religions and I found your response enlightening. :smile:

  218. Bychance says:

    Elysian- thank you……just a little embarrassed and a little mad at myself right now.
