Happy Birthday Queen Victoria! aka @DavidArchie fangirl

This weekend begins the first long weekend of the summer, with Monday being Victoria Day.

Generally, we celebrate here by wearing tiaras and walking around speaking in a fake British accent but this year, I thought I’d do a special tribute to Queen Vic herself.

She was quite a woman, marrying for love (astounding for royalty of her time), having nine children and reigning as Queen for 63 years. Fun fact: She loved music and I have a feeling she’d be a huge David Archuleta fan.

I imagine her fangirling would have gone something like this….

Starting from an early age….

Getting carried away at shows…..



Post-show ennui….



A little too not over it….



Have a great weekend, guys!

(Sadly, I will be travelling and will miss all the news from tomorrow night’s Chapman event *SOBS*… but anyone who leaves me some highlights in the comments will get a big hug from me, along with some freshly baked Beaver Tails!!!)
NANDITO AKO REUNION!!!! woooot!!!! (maybe she can give D. some Josh Bradley hair fluffing 🙂 )

Guys! I'm doing a giveaway with @knhphoto !!! She is seriously amazing and made me feel like I've known her all my life. The rules are: 1. You have to follow both me and @knhphoto 2. Tag 3 friends (every tag after that counts as an extra entry) There will be two winners. One for a full hour session and one for a mini session. It will start now till Saturday at 12 PM MST 🙂 comment away! The other day, I was thinking about how people call themselves "mistakes" or "failures", and it makes me really sad to think about what they've been through to make themselves believe that. Of course, it's hard not to think that at times when we've messed up. It's a natural thing to think about, but it's sad to me that it IS a natural thing to think about. Everything that God creates is beautiful, right? So why do we make ourselves the exception? He made us with love. And that love is everlasting. It will never stop. God never leaves us, and he never has. How beautiful is it that someone can look at us with endearing eyes despite what others/we think about ourselves? It's a challenge when we're constantly comparing ourselves to the people all around us. We wish we're one way, but we just aren't. And how wonderful is that? We're all unique. We exist to balance each other out. We need each other to figure life out. We go through trials to help us become stronger. Our weaknesses are there to humble us. You are not your mistakes. Do not make yourself believe that you are. You are wonderful and a child of God. Knowing that has helped me through SO much. He can take away any pain, any heartbreak, and any sorrow we've felt. I love my savior, Jesus Christ. Not only did He live for us, but He died for us. He did it because He thought we were worth it.

    *Giggles* I opened Twitter for the first time in over a week and your announcement of this was right at the top. Well played!

    I’m looking around for a tiara as I type. I’m also looking around for a tiny kitten. She’s visiting this level of the house for the first time. There are so many hiding places we may never see her again.
    (No, I won’t let that happen!)

    I think you’re right! Queen Victoria was her own woman and would have loved David’s songs, making him rewrite MKOP to ensure that there would be something about possessing royal dignity and bearing. Humble she maybe wasn’t.

    I thought Beaver Tails were fried! Now I must scan for Chapman news, just to taste one.

    Ha! Your cleverness cup runneth over. No wonder Her Majesty aka @MrsArchieUK is celebrated–our kind of gal.

    “I would venture to warn against too great intimacy with artists as it is very seductive and a little dangerous.”

    Thanks for the smiles and giggles as always!! I cant wait to see Bridezilla seated on the front row at Rexburg. And hoping TaterZen will leave poster for me to grab!! Happy Victoria Day Weekend! Your Beaver Tail proposal is mouthwatering 🙂

  4. missbianca says:

    I think David looks really ill-at-ease in front of that huge video camera. 😦

    Thanks for all the Victoria Day weekend laughs TOfan, haha. Yes, this is what we normally do..
    “Generally, we celebrate here by wearing tiaras and walking around speaking in a fake British accent” Lol
    What an entertaining tribute, lots of smiles and chuckles (isn’t that a brand of chocolate….)?
    Some great photos posted here too and must say…..Amber looks just lovely in that photo, so sweet as is her blog.
    As for Beaver Tails, haven’t eaten one of those for quite some time. Not the healthiest but oh..tasty!

    Do I qualify 😉 (not much yet)

    Chapman U highlights — I’ll be waiting for my hugs and Beaver Tail!!

    First, start off by reading this great recap from DjaFan, who was there! Album 7!! Spanish convos!! Gorgeous voice! Writing My Little Prayer!! ❤ https://thevoicedavidarchuleta.com/2016/05/21/david-archuleta-performs-at-baccalaureate-service/

    Then run, don't walk, to watch this video of acoustic Numb! Hopefully it doesn't get yanked lol

    After you recover from that, click on the YT channel for the person who posted that and see that he posted 5 of the 6 songs that David performed and revel in that ridiculous tone.

  8. peppertara says:

    Just love his acoustic “Numb” ! Wow, so good and David sounds fabulous on all of the songs. I had a feeling he must have written that sweet, sweet song, “My Little Prayer” (or did someone mention that previously, not sure but it is lovely). Loved reading DjaFan’s recap….wonderful….and how great that she got to speak to David in Spanish.
    He just puts so much life and sensitivity into whatever he is singing and with that amazing voice, it becomes powerful and such a joy to listen to. Looking forward to album # 7 !!
    Thank you Tina for bringing the latest over here! I’d send you a beaver tail but may just let TOfan do that, haha but here’s a ….{{hug}}. 🙂

    • Tina says:

      You’re most welcome! 🙂 All hugs are appreciated but I can’t say for sure about the beaver tail yet lol.

  9. oliveoil says:

    Hi y’all !!! Thank you for posting all the music from Chapman. I love NUMB so much !! Please David, finish #7 and come to the east coast for a concert.

    • Grammyj says:

      Yes, David finish #7 already! You’ve been working on it for 2 years, and we know you can record an album in three days (Forevermore album was done that fast). Add the midwest to your tour!

      • TOfan says:

        Wait, wut??? #7??? I thought we were only getting an EP?? He makes it extremely difficult to keep expectations in check! sheesh 🙂

  10. refnaf says:

    eeeeeeeeeeeep These vids are soooooo good!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Grammyj says:

    Newsflash for TOfan – David’s latest Instagram picture is with songwriter/producer Cason Cooley who also wrote/produced with (wait for it) Ben Rector! I thought you’d like to know that since Ben in also one of your favorites (and mine too). I am squeeing with you. Hoping for album 7 soon.

    • TOfan says:
