Marie Osmond and David Archuleta

American Idol 7 alum, David Archuleta, is in Nashville doing a little songwriting, and also catching up with pals like Marie Osmond. She tweeted a photo with the caption, “Just landed in Chicago. Such a fun day in Nashville catching up with dear friends like @DavidArchie” Earlier, David tweeted, “Good writing comes out of Nashville ????. Glad to be in one of my favorite towns working with some mighty talented writers.”

Welcome Back @Kariontour!

Kari has a well deserved (and needed) break at home and we’d like to wish her a “stay” with plenty of R&R and family&friends time! I think that pool looks like a perfect place to “park!” :)

THEROCK81490 captured a pretty awesome performance of “Bubbly” by David that night in the crisp Fairbanks air. It’s my choice vid to share today from that concert. :)

Also from that show was a cute fan “documentary” of David visiting her northern home state. We’ve posted it in the past but it’s a fun one to revisit on a TBT Alaska Concert anniversary. ~Enjoy!

This is a super short (vacay) post, along with it being a slow news day (so far) but I’ll be right here ready to post any news. Thanks everyone for hanging out with us! Enjoy your Thursday and Kalei will be here tomorrow.

Thank You To The Troops: Holly Updates Us!

thank you to our troops credit holly

Holly sent us an update to share on the immense success of the “Thank you To The Troops” Campaign . Thank you Holly for your great effort in orchestrating this project and delivering all of the contributions to Operation Gratitude, and thank you all for your generosity!!  Archies are GO-GETTERS! :)

FROM HOLLY~

Hello!  I thought I’d give you an update for the Thanks to the Troops project. I have received 35 boxes full of Beanie Babies, personal care items, snacks, socks, hats, survivor bracelets, note cards, etc. I have also received donations in excess of $1000 to be used for purchasing more supplies for the troops and for shipping costs.

 Today I received an email from one of our donators, @cathyK, who had made many paracord survivor bracelets. Here’s what she did to further help:

 “After sending the paracord bracelets off to you, I decided to continue with the idea of selling them and donating the proceeds to Operation Gratitude.  I wanted to create some in team colors to sell at our coffee bar, knowing that there would be interest.  This past weekend, I had a sign displayed for OG next to the bracelets and also an explanation of the tour that David did for the troops.  So, minus some money for the materials purchased, I have $100 and would like to donate it…”

 Isn’t that awesome? Thanks Cathy!
