Wishes do come true!  This morning the Conferencia 2015 Mision Guadalajara posted some great photos from the “Face to Face with David Archuleta” event on their Facebook page – plus some lucky fans posted pics they had taken with David!

There are pics of a pianist, with David holding what appears to be a hymnal – so songs were sung!  Probably in Spanish!  No vids have surfaced, so we’re guessing that videos were not allowed – oh well, the pics are awesome!  Thanks to everyone who shared the links or pics on twitter!

I’m posting a few pics from the Conferencia 2015 Mision Guadalajara’ s FB and there’s a link below so you can visit the FB page yourself to see all of the photos!

We’ve seen tweets that Lupe joined David on this trip to Guadalajara, but no pics to confirm that yet – if she’s there with Kari too, hope they’re all having a fabulous time!

David shared this pic on Instagram –  some people guessed maybe he is already in Guadalajara, Mexico for the Conference Jas Mission Guadalajara 2015, where he will be a featured speaker.  Just this past weekend David was in LA enjoying the LA Street Food Fest and rollerskating with Kendra, now he’s in Mexico where he’ll be answering questions sent in to the conference’s Facebook site – Waldo’s on the move!

We Love L.A.

And it seems so do David and Kendra!  Kendra posted some pics on her IG of spending the days with friends (including David) at the LA Street Food Fest and rollerskating after! David is rocking the shorts, sunglasses and a baseball cap - and look, ankle socks!

David took a spin on some roller skates before taking his bike ride – remember when he loved to rollerblade? David is on wheels and on the move!

A throw back to David’s younger days when he was an avid roller blading fan!

David will be a featured speaker at this conference in Guadalajara, Mexico – we think Kari must be there with him, because she gave us a little hint!

Speculation has begun about whether David will be singing as part of the conference, and if so, will it be a song in Spanish!  We all hope he brings the Spanish flair and that someone shares some pics and vids!  We don’t know if that will be allowed, but since there is a Q&A session, similar to the Fireside David did in Hawaii, we’re hopeful that pics and vids will be allowed!  Let us know if you find anything online!

Kari also RT’d a tweet from My Dear Writer and asked Archies to support MDW’s new project.

Idaho Falls - Get Your Tix Now!

Believe it or not, there are still tickets left for David’s concerts in Idaho Falls – less than 50% of the ticket have been sold for Thursday and only 55% sold for Friday - which is quite unusual for a David concert!  Those fans going to Layton could make a 4-day tour out of it by attending the Idaho Falls concerts too – can you imagine seeing 4 David concerts in a row? Heaven!!

Throwback Thursday Memories

The year, if your mind can stretch back that far, was 2008. The month was December, and these two were doing the promo rounds in the early days of their pop careers by performing at various Jingle Ball events together.

David Archuleta had come in second place (behind winner David Cook) earlier that year on American Idol. By the end of the summer, his power ballad single “Crush” was soaring at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Shortly after, an unknown New York pop diva named Lady Gaga released her debut LP The Fame. Her single “Just Dance” had been slowly working its way up from the dance club circuit onto radio and into the mainstream pop charts. By December it was finally sitting in the Top 10, and a month after this particular Jingle Ball appearance, “Just Dance” would become the first of three #1s (to date) for Gaga.

Anyway, enjoy seeing Mother Monster and Archie interacting a much more wide-eyed and innocent time — when the Idol alum appeared quite taken aback and nervous around the charismatic and sassy Gaga.

PS Total eyebrow-raising moment: Just before they share a hug, David looks in the camera and says, “She’s gonna be a great opener!”

My, how the times have changed.

Let’s Talk About Love


Screen Shot 2015-07-16 at 10.18.09 PM

This tweet sparked a conversation in Comments about the Build-A-Bear days and those of us who have one (or maybe two!) David Bears!  I admit, I am in the “2-Bear” camp – but I got one as a gift!  I still love my David Bears! I remember when we left Jerry in line for the Pomona Solo Concert while the girls went to the mall to get our David Bears!  We weren’t successful that day, but did get our bears the next day – so much fun!

Charlotte says:

I kinda have two :blushes: one, who’s actually a beanie buddy bear, wearing the David shirt and a Build-A-Bear wearing an outfit similar to the one David wore when I first saw him live in Pomona in March ’09(olive green button down, jeans and converse shoes). The latter bear even has his own microphone :)

  • Anne-Marie says:

    I still have my Build a Bear! He’s wearing a red & black checked shirt with a white t-shirt underneath and holding a microphone too! Lol.

  • Mary Dee says:

    Hahah I am jealous :) I don’t think we ever had those in Oregon.
