Snow Daze 

Here in Minnesota, we’ve had a lovely warm few days with temps in the 20’s (Fahrenheit yup, and yes that’s pretty mild for January.) Cold air is moving in this weekend with more snow soon to follow, so today, I’m revisiting a fun snowy Utah January 2011 vlog from David.

In this particular vlog, David gave us a nice little tour of his snowy backyard, talked about snowboarding for the 1st time, inspired us to try it, showed us a cool icicle,  inspired us to try a new restaurant and talk with the owners (which we did), and he even introduced us to Katsu, a “slinky”cat!

Oh how I miss getting these vlogs from David and how I look forward to once again hearing him say, “Hi guys, it’s David here” when he returns in 2014!!!  During 2013, however, I’ll savor revisiting every one of these treasured David Archuleta vlogs from the past!!

* * * * * *

And to further “melt your heart” after watching that  fun vlog, I’ll leave you with a couple choice performance songs from David ~

Everything and More Vid credit:RUSHARR .  To hear this song live remains on my wishlist!!

My second “melt your heart” pick on this Thursday is “Something ‘Bout Love” from Myrtle Beach~ credit to Jonerz. This outdoor “beachy vibe” SBL could possibly be my most favorite SBL performance!

And  just one more dose of warmth & sunshine. 🙂

*credit Spokeo*

***Remember tomorrow night is the encore MKOCFTH virtual concert beginning tomorrow (Friday) night at 12 midnight . Grab your PJs, pillows, popcorn, and join us!!  http://www.ustream.tv/channel/fodfansofdavid

Happy Thursday everyone!

    @IdolChatteryd: 2012 in Review: The best songs from former Idol contestants. http://ow.ly/gHsLG

    5. David Archuleta: “Broken”

    Before leaving on a two-year mission with his church, David recorded an album called “Begin.” This is the album’s sole original, and a wonderful reminder of why David won legions of still faithful fans on Season 7 of American Idol.

  20. kimk says:

    Pinoy Archies ‏@Pinoy_Archies
    ARCHIES, @kariontour RAINBOW is unchanged at No.6. on @MYXphilippines . . Keep on voting daily:)

  21. sarahhazel says:

    LOVE this line from the Idol Chatter list….. 🙂
    “….But it’s the list I’d rather highlight — 10 more obscure Idol songs that deserved to be hits … or at least heard. Repeatedly.”
    I agree 1000%!

  22. jackryan4da says:

    There is a HUGE CORRECTION in the twit message for the EL Fun Poll.

    @ElifestyleBlog #TELPinoyNewsmaker I Vote for David Archuleta for Foreign Act Newsmaker Of The Year

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I just copy-pasted from the description box of the YT vid itself which Lifestyle twitted. I cross-checked with the Contest Rules on the PollDaddy where the above correct twitter account is reflected.

    Thanks @breanneruss for the heads up 🙂

    SIGH. Pls re-tweet before Feb 13 ok?

  23. Ali says:

    sarah – from your post at 11:36, if you go to this link http://rhiminee.tumblr.com/post/40161626450/wahhh-whats-this-more-pics-ive-never-seen and click on the pictures individually, they will show up bigger. tumblr is acting kind crazy for me right now though so not sure if it will load correctly.

  24. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–Oh, I know, but for some reason, when I click on each, only half of a pic appears…dang, maybe it’s my computer….LOL

  25. Ali says:

    No I think it’s tumblr. It’s only loading part of the pictures for me and the just spinning spinning forever lol. I think they’re having server issues. Hopefully it’ll be sorted out soon!

  26. sarahhazel says:

    Ali–could be it…thanks, anyway! 🙂

  27. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello sarahhazel, breanne, jackryan and Ali! Working on the VOTE! Hurry 2/13!

  28. Janel aka Nellie says:

    This is what I spent 2 days trying to finish (finally did). I bought some Panda Express take-out boxes and altered them into badge boxes for my Girl Scouts. I covered the triangles on the side with patterned Girl Scout paper and the Panda image on the front and added their names. Stamped the flaps on top with a Girl Scout stamp I bought at Viva Las Vegas stamps in Vegas, of course. On the top of each box it says “hot food, enjoy”. I changed the Hot food” with a name label. Added a ribbon. The colors I chose somewhat coordinate with the colors of their badge books.
    So, got my plans for tomorrow almost ready so just taking a breather and taking in some David pics and news here. 🙂

  29. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Altered green Panda box for my Brownies (with brown patterned polka-dot paper on the sides). http://twitpic.com/bu28qg

  30. sarahhazel says:

    Hi, VaBch!!!

    Janel–you’re such a creative arts and crafts person….wish I had even 1/4 of your skillzzz!

  31. sarahhazel says:


  32. Janel aka Nellie says:

  33. kimk says:

    ohh Justin Timberlake has new music coming out!!
    hope that means there will be a tour and I can go and Kari will be there!!?

  34. sarahhazel says:

    Janel–you’re very welcome!

    kimk–I like JT.

  35. kimk says:

    Justin Timberlake Sexy Back

    makes sense to me!!

  36. kimk says:

    sarahhazel ahh this photoshoot.. David is such a natural!
    he should do more of these!
    oh and so do I! dang but not sure the hubs will let me go if a tour.
    rofl.. will have to work on that one!!
    can you imagine all the buzz if David were to ever open for him??!!!

  37. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–that would be good BUZZ and BUZZ is good!!!

  38. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimk, I really like looking at that view…..Sexy Back is one of my favorite songs to listen while exercising..lovin’ some Justin Timberlake. Sometimes songs just need to be fun.

  39. kimk says:

    cq we were not used to seeing David like that but the shoot is adorbs!
    gorgeous even at that young of an age.
    I like JT.. lol just that song and D like oil & vinegar.
    or at least the way it is supposed to be.
    that being said.. not all that is supposed to be is that way in actuality.
    ha enough of my big mouth.. hope JT tours and Kari is there!
    in the least hope for fun pics and vids!!

  40. VaBeachArchie says:

    Back at the beach and checking in before work! If JT tours that would be a PERFECT birthday gift for my daughter…she LOVES him!

    kimk…David is a natural….BENCH 2014 is what I’m waiting for!!! Something about the way he looks in the Philippines … clothes that FIT and are stylish and FAB vids and pics to boot!

    Well work calls…..be back lae night to VOTE! ENJOY! 🙂

  41. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimk, what do you mean? “not all that is suppose to be is that way in actuality”
    intriguing..just don’t understand.

  42. ksf says:

    LOVE the JT teaser. Can’t wait to see what he comes out with. I’m sure it’ll be epic!!

  51. kimk says:

    speaking of mystery… a new David song coming perhaps!!?
    guessing we will hear a lil somethin somethin by Jan 19.
    no idea why I am saying that.. I just am!! 🙂

  52. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–huh? Jan. 19? where did that date come from? 😕

  53. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl–she’s probably doing some shopping at Rodeo Drive….haha….

  54. kimk says:

    sarrahhazel just guessing.. a feeling I suppose? figured she wouldn’t say things like she has and not be ready to have things happen?
    lol unless they are like D’s team!
    ha don’t mind me.. I get bored and make trouble.

  55. glitter*girl says:

    all i know for sure is david has a thing for ballerinas and butterflys! 🙂 (listening to P&A right now) lol

  56. glitter*girl says:

    sarah~ yeah she said she was shopping for luggage but i wonder if her trip was for fun or professional like for modeling or TV show or something? 🙂

  57. glitter*girl says:

    wonder if this new song will be released to radio? still don’t know how that works! 🙁 and who makes that decision?

  58. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ i’m thinking jan 17 😉

  59. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–you may have real psychic powers…for all you know….LOL

  60. sarahhazel says:

    glitter*girl–I’m wondering about that too….(on the music release)….. ❓

  61. sarahhazel says:

    Dominique ‏@_ddddom

    oh my god my love for @DavidArchie has just been renewed, time to watch all of his Idol performances again!!! ^____^

  62. sarahhazel says:

    Going for 300 & final votes for today!!!

  63. sarahhazel says:

    Done with Musiqtone….break time, then back to other voting duties….esp. the EL poll, yikes…can’t let the gap widen on that one!

  64. kimk says:

    could only hope if Kari does work with JT.. when David comes back it rubs off on him!?
    wouldn’t mind a lil JT swagger going D’s way!!!

  65. kimk says:

    oh no!!!

    but why!!??

    hope there is back up considering there will be no NA DVD!!! 🙁

  66. donna says:

    Awww I loved that vlog. After I saw it the first time, i went to a Nepalese restaurant in town, and learned that 2011 was the ‘Year of Tourism’ in Nepal.

  67. sarahhazel says:

    kimk– 🙁 😥

  68. sarahhazel says:

    I hope they don’t take down the short videos on You Tube.

  69. breanne says:

    David almost caught up on the Foreign Act Newsmaker of the Year Poll & now he is further behind!!! 🙁 🙁 If you have time to help out in the voting, please do. The voting is unlimited!! The person in lst place has relentless fans like David does!!

  70. breanne says:

    Can’t believe I got that voting box to show up!! 🙂

  71. pocoelsy says:

    Hi all

    You all are the real go getter, nice to see David catching up on 1stPinoyNewsmaker2012: poll daddy :), yesterday when I went to bed it was about 10,000 votes behind !!! this is so challenging and kinda fun haha keep voting don’t be discourage..we won’t go down without a fight lol vote on every poll haha 😀

  72. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi everyone . I’ve been votong. pocoelsy, I needed that pep talk. Don’t seem to be getting anywhere on poll daddy.

    Linda- I miss you. Hope you are okay.

  73. sarahhazel says:

    breanne–been voting on EL since this morning…..and on Musiqtone too (cuz it ends tomorrow!)….& Chart Central & MYX in between….LOL….when will these end?!

  75. sarahhazel says:

    Have a good night’s rest, supergrand!

  76. pocoelsy says:

    Supergrand Hi and good night 🙂 I don’t really know what David would gain by winning those polls lol but if it means to keep his name out there then it’s worth a try, just do it for him and myself (as much as I can haha I have some other things to do too ) like I said it’s an up hill battle but fun, I love “fighting” haha

    Hi Sarahhazel, been doing that too.

    MKOCFTH virtual concert !!! Ahh I’m really bad about converting the time zone !!! see if I can figure it out and join you all, see ya 😀

  77. VaBeachArchie says:

    Home from work and on the VOTE! We have our work cut out for us ……a fanbase as relentless as us!!

  78. meganloves2lol says:

    i was so surprised to see my little post from the comments on here today! thanks fod! and thanks everyone who wished me a happy early birthday! my b-day is tomorrow and i’m going to play at laser tag and have my david cake, which is probably annoying to everyone, because this will be my 5th david cake. my first david cake was my 13th birthday. crazy, people said i’d be over him in a year and now it’s been 5 🙂 i love this little journey we’ve all be. i’ll be sure to e-mail a picture of my cake too!

  79. josie says:

    Quiet day, huh?

    Hope your birthday is awesome, Megan. 🙂

  80. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hi guys….Just random thoughts here……I watched the video of David talking about snowboarding and his cat in his Murray, Utah backyard in January of 2011…..He even said it was down time in the music industry……..Just had to remember that this was the time David was trying to decide to break his contract with Jive and go on down the road on his own path that would eventually lead him to his decison to go on his Mission…..Just have to think he was a little sad and at the same time struggling with this important life changing decision………Seems like it all turned out to be a good decision on his part………..We are so blessed to have David in our lives…….Miss Vicki

  81. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Only made one comment today….but it is quality not quanity….Night all…Miss Vicki

  82. Lucy says:

    Gee Kimk, you seem so positive there will be no NA DVD, I’m still crossing my fingers, might be silly but I’m hoping. So far no one has said there will never be a DVD, so we’ll see, even Kari said not right now and not never. I hope Jackryan puts her videos back up, I still watch them often, would be kinda cruel to take them off there when the DVD is still iffy. Anyway love all the pics and it’s always such a warm feeling coming here. Good nite guys 🙂

  83. jackryan4da says:

    Guys, of course the NA vids have all back-ups. I will resurrect them soonest 🙂 I didn’t even know they were taken down until an Archie alerted me to that fact. No reason given by dailymotion – just says rejected…

    To be candid about it, it even amazes me they stayed that long up there at dailymotion…

    I will put up the link once I have the vids ready 🙂

  84. pocoelsy says:


    Happy Birthday Megan :D. Love to see your cake :D, are you going to leave any part of the cake uncut and which part are you going to eat first and last? Haha weird questions I know, but just curious 🙂

    Josie, yeah I guess folks are voting hard 😀

    Miss Vicki, aw I have to go back and look this vid up, we are so blessed 🙂

    I have my own story to share 🙂 , I was listening to “Wait” in the car with my daughter on the way back from her school, let me tell you about our convo :

    my daughter : “Oh it’s been a while since the last time I listened to Wait !! I think this is my most fav song from him <3" she rocked the song so hard in our car lol
    Me : I thought you've forgotten about David and move on to 1D!! (she's a big fan of 1d now and I have to listen to them !!! like… alot, actually they are not bad hehe !!)

    my daughter : "I still love David !! but he's away and has not have new fun songs in a while !!! " now she's rocking to TOSOD (my fav song).

    me : Oh !! so if he comes back and make new music, you'll be jamming with his songs again then 🙂

    my daughter : "Most defenitely …yup yupp I'm jamming now, am I not :)?"

    we arrived home when SBL was on, she said "I wanna finish this song first then I'll get in the house k?"

    She's still in the car !! I guss by now it must "Stomping The Roses" !!

    I think all David needs is exposure, all he needs is for people to hear him and see him again, they all love him they just need to be reminded from time to time !!!
    I have to go ask my daughter to get in the house now lol !!


  85. pocoelsy says:


    That’s a good news, love you <3

  86. Bychance says:

    Miss Vickie…I agree, so blessed. Lucy….NA DVD would be awesome, and I’m not giving up hope yet, either.

    So I have just spent the last hour…um, maybe two?..lost in the cutest/ funniest moments vids. Wish I’d been around to hear what you guys had to say when those came out! I’ve been laughing out loud……honestly, he is the most adorable thing on the planet. Not an ounce of pretention in him. I know he has matured considerably since then, thank heavens, but I hope he never loses that joyful, hopeful, open, honest heart. I can not help but love him to pieces. ( I remind myself here….you are a grown woman with boys of your own …….how did this happen???…………I don’t know….)

    Goodnight all……been voting from sick bed…oh that sounds more pathetic than it is. I’m fine.

  87. Bychance says:

    Thanks, jackryan….I haven’t seen them all yet!

    Pocoelsy, I love your story! Yeah, we just need to see him again! Goodnight again.

  88. frio says:

    jackryan, speaking of back ups…do you happen to have back ups of the Paparazzi videos chronicling David’s stay in Manila last Jan-Feb? I remember it caused some channel issues for you on yt.

    Is there any leeway for people to view it again w/o infringing copyrights? Totally understand if its gonna be difficult to resurrect them. Do you think they’re available on some of the Pinoy TV streaming sites?

    Btw, thanks for being such a generous, techie pro 🙂

  89. jackryan4da says:

    Hugs pocoelsy 🙂

    Happy bday Maegan!

  90. frio says:

    oh hey, I found the Paparazzi episodes on a streaming site, haha! Thanks anyway, JR! 😀

  91. blue says:

    oh my goodness these polls.
    my fingers are about to fall off…

  92. meganloves2lol says:

    pocoelsy- i always have such a hard time cutting david’s face!! LOL! and on this particular picture he just so gorgeous. but i always eat his face since i’m the birthday girl, wow that sounded so weird hahaha. a part doesn’t want to eat any of the cake, just save the whole thing! haha. have a good night everyone 🙂

  93. VaBeachArchie says:

    HAPPY FRIDAY! A quick hello from the beach!

    The Entertainment poll sure is INTENSE! Wish some of the twitter followers would jump on the vote…..that sure would help!

    Want a DVD of Nandito Ako too! The weeks David was in the Philippines with all his appearances, BENCH and Nandito Ako is a FAVORITE David memory. Wish I knew how many times I watched jackryan’s vid of David singing Nandito Ako at the Bench/FIX launch! THANKS jackryan!

    Nana patrol! First day with the NEW member of my daughter’s family….puppy MIDNIGHT! He’s 8 months old …house broken….so that’s a GOOD thing! The SPCA sure does a WONDERFUL JOB!


  94. kimk says:

    Lucy well maybe it will come out when he gets back? if he takes on another show might cause some buzz.. good time to release it.
    would be nice.

    Jackryan WHEW!!

    Good morning folks!!!
    Happy Friday!!

  95. kimk says:
