David Archuleta in Arizona ~ T Minus 12 Days and Counting!
Posted by djafan on Sunday, September 4, 2011
May I have your attention please!!
Constitution Fair Site
Word. It is going to be very hot in Arizona (average temp this time of year 103 degrees). So please dress cool and wear red, white and blue. The most important thing is to be comfortable in the heat. Dress code is optional. You have to dress, but the colors I mean. Por favor don’t make him have to get after you with his sharpie. Now. Time is growing very short and we have a few updates to post and discuss. I hit publish last night and then took it down to work out some fine details. Sorry for the confusion. Oh, BTW…
*Update for Gifting*
For the Gilbert, AZ event on September 17, SweetonDA will be accepting letters, cards, donation envelopes and gifts for David. Please keep packages small and no larger than a shirt box or large packing envelope. To get her mailing address, email her at
Over a hundred wristbands have been mailed out by Djafan. She has extended the time for ordering to the 6th which gives the mail 8 days to get back to you. Any left will be sold at the gate by the venue for fans who want to donate and get reserved seating but didn’t hear about it online. Some wristbands have been generously purchased for gifting. Thank you to you know who you all are! See me about that. I will be wearing a red hat. Or possibly a straw colored hat with red, white and blue scarves tied on. I can’t decide. 😕
*Update – We are getting Bracelets!*
SandyBeaches has generously purchased uber-awesome silicone bracelets for gifting to everyone going to the event! Anyone who has a wristband will receive a bracelet, shown below. Thank you SandyBeaches! Muwaah! A truer statement could not be worn. She has ordered a nice variety of sizes too, not just one size fits all. 🙂 I will let her post more on this in comments.
Two bouquets for sure will be purchased…one from the fans who could not attend and one from those attending. If you are not attending and would like to contribute to flowers, send a small donation to SweetonDA at her email above. Indicate that you would like the donation to go for flowers. For the other bouquet, those attending will be shaken down on the spot. 😉 We are only talking 1 to 5 dollars. Leftover money will go toward possibly having an Edible Bouquet (which would melt in the heat) delivered to his hotel room. <<<<This last would be delivered via event coordinators for obvious reasons. Here are some links for florists in the town of Gilbert if you are interested in making your own purchase. Bouquets should be brought to venue and hopefully we can get them to him after his set, along with the cards, small gifts, etc; sent to SweetonDA or brought by those attending. One large bag should do it. SandyBeaches is bringing a Canadian Hockey bag. I have no idea what that is but it sounds really cool…and manly. A little aside inside note..Djafan said Barbara Stowell (event coordinator extraordinaire and super nice lady) was surprised that we actually wanted to GIVE him stuff! BAHAHHAAAAAA!!! smh.
*Meet and Eat*
We need to meet up in order to give out the bracelets and take up donations for flowers. Donations are optional. Lots of options in this post! “Free your mind.” lol. At 11:00 am Saturday (at someplace yet to be determined) we need to meet and get reacquainted cause that’s half the fun of a David event, riiight? ♥ No one will be allowed in the gates until 5:30 pm, so I hope we can spend some time shopping and enjoying the day. 🙂 I will let you know where we are meeting for lunch asap. I have talked to 4 places so far and will narrow it down to one in a day or two and post that info here.
Getting so excited! Can’t wait to see everyone and of course, see and hear the Voice again! That is the one thing about this trip that is NOT optional. Da man is mandatory! Feels like the 12 days of Christmas! *Goes to listen to Glad Christmas Tidings* 🙂
