The Idols Blog – David Archuleta and Brooke White Blog

David Archuleta having a snack in between recording sessions for his upcoming album…

The Season 7 Idols have finished touring and settle into life after Idol. For Brooke White, it means heading back to her family in California.

Well it was two weeks ago today that I was sitting on an airplane that departed from Tulsa, Oklahoma, anxiously looking out of the window as we flew over Laurel Canyon just moments before landing in Burbank, California. As we touched down on the runway I could hardly believe it was true. Could I really be home?!? I walked down the steps from the plane into the warm California sunshine and just as a nice breeze passed by and blew my hair around… I through my hands in the air let out a big “YAY!!!!” No words could describe my happiness at the moment… kind of like Christmas Morning… Kind of like walking down Main street at Disneyland with a churro in hand… Kind of like eating Eggs Benedict on my birthday kind of happiness. Maybe this means nothing to you, but basically I’m trying to say it was indeed very joyful… as well as I walked to baggage claim to see Dave just smiling there in his church clothes all ready to pick me up and take me home. I rolled down the windows in the car and turned up the radio… amazing!

More after the JUMP…

Brooke shouldn’t start her blogs at night, because…

OKAY, well you know how I do this, I start a blog, get sleepy and then have to stop… so this is too be continued. Basically coming up is a recap on the madness last few weeks, coming “home-home” and finally hitting a wall last night and coming to the realization, I REALLY NEED A BREAK… this gal is very frazzled, mentally, emotionally and physically. But it’s okay cause I am forcing myself to take a few days off and just “let it be”. So till next time, goodnight to you!

I look forward to about 20 paragraphs! I’m not kidding when I say that I honestly look forward to Brooke’s wordy, meandering, self-reflective blogs. They’re just so…Brooke!

David Archuleta blogs that he’s busy in the studio, but he takes a break and goes out to a concert. He sees Journey, Heart and Cheap Trick. He gets back stage, but is afraid he’s bugging them and invading their space! Ha ha! Oh, Archie!

I’m just checking in from the studio but if you’re wondering if I’ve been able to do anything else this last week besides working on the album, I was able to go to the Journey with Heart and Cheap Trick concert last night!! Woo Hoo! haha. The sad thing was I missed Cheap Trick and part of Heart because I was recording :(, but at least I was doing something productive and important haha. So I’m bummed I couldn’t see the first part of the show, but Heart was amazing as always. Journey was incredible too!! I was able to go backstage and meet them during the intermission after Heart’s set, and I have to admit I was nervous because I felt like I was just bugging them and invading their space haha. But they were waaay nice. They have the new singer Arnel Pineda, and I can’t believe how amazing he can sing. He’s Filipino, and blew me out of the water! Another sad part is I didn’t bring my camera since I was thinking about recording before haha, but I tried getting pictures of them performing on my iPhone. I’m a terrible photographer but oh well. I actually have some really random pictures on my iphone from tour, but I think it’d be fun to post them anyway just so you can see what I tried to take pictures of wandering around haha. But I’ll think about it, since they’re not exciting.

I want to see the “random” photos he took with his camera phone.
