Watching the smile light your face …

Thanks to Invisible Children for tweeting today’s quote this weekend.

Celebrating World Smile Day 😀 😀 😀

I thought it was World Smile Day today by this source.  But looks like it could have been Friday Oct. 4.  Dang it,  I COULD have been smiling all weekend long!  Rats!

No matter what the date, it’s always World Smile Day where David Archuleta and his international fans are concerned!  Just think of David, and you naturally smile outwardly or inwardly.  Or both!

Try it.


So I googled David Archuleta smile and got some awesome pictures.  All of them you have probably seen here or elsewhere, but I thought I’ll share six screens full of smiles from David:  some large, broad and accompanied by a hearty laugh,  some subtle and shy.  All of them genuine and oh-so-miss-worthy!

You better click on them to make them big!  I’m going to intersperse some of my faves inbetween these screencaptures.

And Sirinity wrote in yesterday and was kind enough to share this lovely picture of David (I don’t recognize it).  It holds a special place to Sirinity so we saved it for our final smile picture today.  Isn’t it great?  Thanks for sharing Sirinity!

David smiling, around the world.  Literally!

Take a look at some of the images from David’s country stops around the world.  I have a feeling there will be many more in the future!

This date in Archu-History!

October seemed to be the month of announcements.  Read on …

Five Years ago!

New Blog

Hey guys! Hope everything’s been going well with everyone. Things have been CRAZY the last week or so, but it’s been soooo much fun. I’ve mainly been writing (!!!) and recording, trying to wrap things up here for the album. I have a couple of pictures here from in the studio! Haha. I mentioned in my mobile message (801.386.8196) a little about writing, but I’m just going to say again how much I love it! It’s been so exciting, being able to write with different writers and learn so much from them. I remember a while back when I first had writing sessions with other people, and I was pretty nervous and frozen, but now I’ve been able to open up and just throw around ideas. Haha. A lot of ideas may even be really lame, haha, but when you just sing a weird line or melody it can spark ideas for who you’re writing with. So, if you’re trying to decide what to do one day, you should write! Haha

Another thing I just wanted to say since I haven’t had a chance to say something in a while is THANK YOU!!! I can’t believe how well the video for “Crush” has done so far, and I’m so glad to hear you guys like it.  It blew my mind again to see that it was #1 on iTunes, and I have just really appreciated how supportive everyone has been. I’ve really missed seeing everyone on tour too, haha. It was fun talking to everyone and hearing what you had to say, so I love looking at the comments posted online and the voice messages crack me up! Oh my heck, haha, I love ’em. But anyway, thanks again so much! I’m doing my best to make this album for you guys, and it’s been a lot of fun!



And a picture from the Disneyland birthday bash for Miley Cyrus …

From Four Years Ago:  Voice message from David

Oct. 7th 2009!  I remember how amazing this was!!!  David was announcing an amazing gift of music to come!

And we had the infamous Puffy-Cheeks-B-Gone vid!   Love all the excitement here.  In his own words:

“I gave up on the last blog, so I just made a new one. My cheeks are finally back to normal! I’ve had a nice time recovering though and relaxing. Went to the Colbie Caillat concert! Was awesome getting to see her again. She’s one of the nicest, casually cool people you could meet. Been exercising and getting back in shape! Going to Nashville for the week to start working on some writing and new projects. Christmas album comes out October 13th! Next week! woot woot”

Loved the exercise mention.  More coming this week from #DA2014Fitclub!

From Three Years Ago:  Announcement of David at Motab

David had JUST been announced as the Motab headliner and here is a bit more from KSL news regarding the appearance in December of that year:

More from TOSOD launch week remembered

Kalei ran a great feature this weekend of the TOSOD launch on October 5th.  Here are a few gifs we collected of that busy busy week!

Two Years ago: a “Road Trip” vlog from California!!

This is toooo precious!  Berkley ALMOST stole the show here, well, she certainly did share it. Here is how David described the vlog:

A little friend of mine Berkley wanted to sing for all of you. haha. Also just wanted to talk about a road trip I took this week which was pretty fun. Going to Okinawa, Japan next week which will be way cool!

And from last year

A special birthday on an Archu-anniversary!

Zulaikha (@ecachan) shared her birthday cake with us!  Happy birthday again!

Awesome first effort! David Archuleta Photo Motion

 From  Frengky MJP.  His first effort, at 15 years of age.  Thanks for the find Joanie!

 IdolGames are still on!!!

@violet4ever sent in a reminder to RT for David.  Click on the tweet to go to the RT link!

* * * * *

Over 1000!

The David Archuleta birthday card signature campaign wrapped up this weekend with over a thousand signatures!  What a great birthday gift from across the miles this will make.

Again, thanks a million to Shelley for getting this effort going, and for doing all the editing and printing.  It’s a big job and if last year’s book is any indication, it will be amazing!  You rock Shelley!

* * * * *

For Music Monday

Are YOU listening to TOSOD this week?  I am, and rewatching live performance vids.  I posted this one few weeks ago but this is such a rare TOSOD tracklist performance, that I thought I’d do it again.

    David #5!! 🙂

    Getty Images
    David Archuleta

    Anyone who has been following the recent career, or lack thereof, of David Archuleta won’t be surprised to discover that the singer is a devout Mormon. In fact, he’s so dutiful to his faith that he’s taking two years off from music to perform missionary work for his church! The former American Idol runner-up told fans about his leave of absence, “It’s not because someone told me I was supposed to do it and not because I no longer want to do music anymore. It’s because it’s what I feel I need to do next in my life.”

    Good afternoon everyone- Tornado watch here in New Jersey. Pastel, Happy smiling Monday. Love all the pictures. Seems like David has been photographed every single minute since his audition on AI. I wonder if he sleeps with a smile on his face in between singing. His smile lights up the world. David is the best solar energy around. So glad to be an ARCHUCRAZY fan.

    sarahhazel, Welcome home. That picture with the guys and gal is new to me. They are at some inn or place that has suites. Nice picture of David. 🙂

    Gosh, I wonder though, since they are doing everything in one
    night, are they not going to have anyone perform anymore? Was
    hoping David would. I miss the results show being separate from
    the dance night. Not a big deal, but……

    Watching the opening number for DWTS, no big deal,
    I do that every morning 😆 The tap & ballet I took
    from when I was 3 til 15 really comes in handy. Its
    nothing to lift my foot behind my head, to my waist,
    or do 3 back walk overs in a row or spin with my head
    bent all the way back, noooooo, easy as pie 😆

    Hey guys, awesome post as usual 🙂 We laid my mom to rest yesterday, was a very nice service, I’m doing okay, feeling a little shell shocked still. I’ve also been spending time with my 11 year old nephew, he has been a nice distraction. Coming here always puts a smile on my face, so glad to have you guys and David to help me get back on track 🙂

  106. idamae says:

    Lucy, your comment earlier consoled me, after remembering what you went through initially with the loss of your mom. God has definitely given you the strength and courage to handle the difficulties of life. Remenber… FOD=”Good Place” !!!

    Pastel, don’t want to embarrass you, Joanie, Kalei or the former mods, but is there any other site present or past, on planet earth or mars or venus for that matter, hahaha that compares to FANS OF DAVID when it comes to showcasing David in a gazillion thought provoking quotes, themes, photos, videos, fan stories, OMG… BTS GIFS, like today’s??? You don’t have to answer that, I’ll do it for you……….NO 🙂 AND PLEASE DON’T EVER STOP!!! 🙂

  107. Lucy….so so sorry to learn of you mother’s passing….Prayers and thoughts being sent your way…..Miss Vicki

    Yesterday was a real nail biter for me. I told my SIL, Margarita from Cuba last week that she’d have a chance to send David a message for his 23rd birthday in spanish. Unfortunately, she was caring for her 2 sick grandkids and the message came to me by email just in the nick of time. I had to trim it down and copy it twice cuz I couldn’t find it the 1st time. I was so worried that the time had expired. When I wrote it a 2nd time I looked through all the comments until I found it and e-mailed her the good news. I was glad to hear the kids were doing better. Thank God it was just a bad cold and not the degue, although they’ve already had it and it was scary esp for the little ones and the elderly.

  113. Idamae….so glad your sister-in-law’s message will get to David and her kids are doing better…..Hey all….is it just me or does anyone else think David’s nose is just as cute as a button???? On that not…….off to bed I go…..Miss Vicki

  114. pocoelsy says:

    Thanks Pastel for this smiley post, my lappy is almost crash due to all those awesome smiley pics and those heartfelt “Smile” vids.

    Love McKenzie Harris collection of David’s pics she must have a truck load of em, love her smart captions to , so much fun 😀 thanks Sarahhazel, Kim for always bringing them here :)…urr but I havent see any tweet about “marry me David” today yet !?! haha we usually see them on a daily basis haha

  115. pocoelsy says:

    What a great looking birthday cake, Zulaikah’s holding, wonder if she’d cut that face and eat it or save it in the fridge hehe !!!

    Listen to TOSOD all the time, my fav album from David and if you call me you’ll hear TGGBT greets you 😀

  116. pocoelsy says:


    Wow !! how nice that you got your sister’s messages out for David in time and good to hear that the kids are recovering from flu not dangue, dangue is very dangerous!!

  117. idamae says:

    Miss Vicki, thanks, I actually imagined I was too late in sending it cuz I thought I’d find it at the end of all the other messages but it seems they put them where ever there’s space throughout the booklet. My SIL doesn’t usually tell us on the spot if there’s anything serious going on there healthwise, in order not to worry us. They’re always in our prayers!

  118. pocoelsy says:


    hello, just to let you know that if you look back on Saturday post that had Bua’s Story in it, you’ll see in the last comment she replied to us :). I fb her too, she asked if you have fb. account, so I said no you dont, unless you happen to make one now !! if so would you mind add me “pocoelsy archies” as your friend, it’ll be much easier to set “a date” that way hehe. Please send my best regards to you mom 🙂

  119. idamae says:

    pocoelsy, so glad you and your daughter are doing better. I know that they use special bed netting for little ones when sleeping as a precaution.
    I thought the same thing when I saw that beautiful cake with David’s face on it. I couldn’t do it LOL

    Buenas Noches, Senorita Vicki 🙂

  120. Jhen says:

    Pocoelsy- I like his different eyes expression while smiling, he smile sincerely, that’s why his beautiful aura comes out naturally. Idamae- glad your sis in law message got on time and her grandchildren are doing ok.

  121. Jhen says:

    Miss Vicki- David have a lot of nickname, In Taiwan and Hongkong they called him Sunshine. Yes, his nose is cute, perfect nose! Sarah- David always stand out in the crowd, he has X factor 🙂

  122. Shanny in Australia says:

    Lucy, I can only imagine how you must be feeling. My sincerest and squishiest cyber (((hugs))) are being sent your way.

  123. Bychance says:

    Lucy, so sorry about your mom. Have been through it too, and can tell you the heartache eases with time and memories become sweet, not painful reminders. Hugs to you and your family.

    Thank you Pastel for this most wonderful smily post. I needed some of D’s smiles today….they are the perfect thing to warm and comfort your heart.

  124. Lucy~ just wanted to offer you (((hugs))) and my condolences. This is a very hard time, and as ByChance said the sweet memories will be there! They will dwell not only in your heart, but also in the little reminders of everyday life. You’ll feel her love, spirit, and strength daily and even more when you need it most. I still feel my mom’s every day. ♥
