This is my David Archuleta wall!

So I love David Archuleta.  I plan on marrying him one day.  I am so proud that he is serving a mission.  This summer, on June 4th, I went to the Festival of Books down at BYU.  At the festival of books I had the opportunity to meet David.  The encounter went something like this.
Walk up to table where David is sitting.  Proceed to drop everything I am holding.  That consists of two CD's, two CD cases, two posters, and a book.  Shaking harder than imaginable.
David:  Are you okay?
Me (nodding like an idiot):  uhhhhh huhhhh.....
Me:  You are AMAZING!*
David:  Well you are amazing too!
Me (dying inside my head, still shaking harder than a 9.0 earthquake):  You inspired me to try out for American Idol next summer!
David:  That's awesome!  You should totally do it!
I'm pretty sure I then said thank you so much!  But I can't remember because I was so dazed.  The girl behind me in line handed my back my camera.  I walked around to grab my bags.  I then proceeded to go outside where I sat and called people.  No one answered.  So there I was completely alone, on facebook freaking out, but having no one to talk to in real life.  Then it hit me what had just happened and I cried.
After this encounter I decided I was definitely marrying him.  Now on to Monday night.  Mom and Dad had told us there would be a Christmas surprise.  I was excited.  Then he told us it had to do with service.  Not quite as excited.  This is what happened after we parked downtown.
We walked along the street towards temple square.  We walked past Abravenal Hall when dad suddenly turned around and walked into Abravenal Hall.  I thought "REALLY! THE SYMPHONY! I'M MISSING GUITAR FOR THIS!"  We walked in.  I was really confused.  I then turned to my left and saw the merchandise stand.  I saw a tee shirt with David's face on it and started to get choked up.
Me:  You got us tickets to the David Archuleta Christmas concert??!?!?!?!?!?!
I then think my dad said are you excited!  We went up to our seats and the opening act was amazing.  Then David came on and sang and I freaked.  He waved at me and the lady next to me at one point.  Then he looked right at me.  (How ironic that the song that is now playing is "Touch My Hand") I screamed.  I sang along to all of his songs.  I was so happy.  He finished and I thought oh, he's probably done, I don't know if he will do an encore song.  But then, he came back out on stage.  He talked a bit and then made the huge announcement that he would be serving a mission.  You would not believe the screams!!! (click here to see the video) Then he sang O, Holy Night.  I cried when he announced it. A lot.  I thought to myself, if I don't marry him, I am marrying someone like him.  I was so proud in that moment to be a Mormon.  After the concert, I tweeted like eight hundred times how excited I was and texted people.  It was late so of course none of my friends responded.  I also posted to facebook.  11 people liked my status. The next day I told everyone I knew.  Even those who didn't care :)
So after being super happy for two days, I went to vocal lessons.  The following happened.
Michelle:  Did you go to the David Archuleta thing on Monday?
I then blabbed about how awesome it was and how I cried a bunch.  Go figure right? I can't remember the exact words that were said next but next thing I know she is holding a paper in front of my face that says "To Lizzie, David Archuleta" I bet you can't guess what I did next...  Yep, that's right, I cried.  It turns out her friend was in the choir that sang with David and she asked her friend to get me an autograph.  They were trying to get me a signed picture, but it was so hectic.  He pulled a paper out of his OWN notebook and signed it.
This is one of the coolest things I have ever gotten.  It means the world to me that she would think to do that for me.  So while I will miss David immensely, I will have a lot to remember him by.  Thank you Michelle and thank you David.  And Angela who got the autograph for me.  I hope one day I can meet you and thank you in person.

My Picture of Me and David

My OMG is this really happening face
You should know, we weren't allowed to ask David to stop signing or to look up for a picture so when I checked my pictures right after the fact, and saw he looked directly at the camera, I was really excited.  Despite my goofy face.
This is my "Other Side Of Down" CD
And my "David Archuleta" CD
My "Other Side of Down" Poster
I like the fact it says "To Lizzie"
And my "David Archuleta" Poster
Lastly, my wonderful book
I feel very fortunate to have had these experiences.  I love David.  I know he is "My Kind of Perfect" and I hope that I am his ;)  a girl can dream right?  (Yes, I know I just made a bad David pun, but hey, it was right there).  If y'all are interested, his book is called Chords of Strength and I know you can for sure buy it at Deseret Book.  Also his opening act was Jeff LeBlanc.  Check him out on twitter @jleblancmusic (hint if you click on that name it will take you there)
I hope y'all have an amazing Christmas!
Love Love Love
