David Archuleta Concert!

Best.... night... ever! This Friday was David Archuleta's only Utah Concert on his tour. And where was I during this wonderful event? I was at the E Center in downtown Salt Lake - Row 6, sitting perfectly there, listening to every song, including songs performed by two other singers that nobody cared about (oops.. that was mean)
I didn't think that life could get better! Hearing tons of his songs being performed that I live for! Every night before I go to bed it's him that I listen to on my iPod... EVERY NIGHT...
I was in heaven! My heart melted at the very beginning when he opened with two of my all time favorites, "Touch My Hand" and "Barriers". Then he stopped his opening and yelled really loud into the microphone, "UTAH!!!!!!" the concert was phenomenal. Every song he sang, including a medley which he incorporated Love Song and A Thousand Miles were two songs he dominated, including a sneak preview at his new song, Zero Gravity. The girls I were with were screaming and howling! I felt that I could reach out and touch his hand! He's so sweet and innocent, and is an *amazing* singer when he's live.. truly incredible. He had a duet with Kara DioGuardi, but since she was in California that night, he performed with a different girl. Next time David comes to town, I'm so going!
After the concert was supposedly "over" (11:00 pm, and I was still on my feet screaming!) he ran back out and sat down on the piano. His anchore was I'm Yours, by Jason Mraz. In that song, there's a swear word. David substituted the word and as soon as he did, the crowd went WILD. I was laughing, thinking, "only in Utah...."

He seemed grateful to be back in his hometown, and I was grateful to recieve such a thrilling oppurtunity! Next year, David's MY birthday present!

It's official! Audrey and I are flying down to Arizona for our Spring Break to hang out with Grandma and the gang.. Both of us by ourselves on the plane going to Arizona, without the rambunctious screaming, we hope that this flight will be a good one!

Today I was working on a Pedigree chart for science when my mom called grandma and asked for names. After receiving some, we looked back and realized that one of the names was Louis E. Lamb, pronounced "Lewis". That happens to be Ethan's exact name (we're actually not sure what the middle name actually is, but that's for another time)... anyway I thought that was pretty funny enough to share. Ethan has a namesake!

Happy Sunday!

I'd like to comment on the approving Sunday afternoon we recieved today. We went to church, which is almost always set in stone, then came home and prepared a lovely meal that we would be sharing with our beloved Lamb family.
You may or may not already have the pleasure of knowing this, but once every month the McGhie's get together and are served delightfully at Kristen and Roberts. Everyone prepares a course of food and everyone picks and grabs at whatever may be in sight. Yum!
So, since a small portion of the Arizona-skinned Lambs transfered to Utah, we decided to bring up this tradition. Today was the first day of business.
Mitch and Nicole brought their adorable curly-haired daughters, Arden and Susan, along with great food, as well as Steve and Ali, with cousins Dallin, Audrey, and Camryn. We gathered our rally and brought over our portion. Suzanne and Scott hosted our little family affair, while Tal and Ethan partied hard with Max, Sam, and Dallin. Emma was ecstatic to play with Rachel and Arden! No worries, Suzy! You will soon have a cute new baby cousin to play with! ;)
For me, food was one of the best parts. A tasty main course of delicious meat, and pressure cooked mashed potatoes to start off left me begging for more! Alongside and very fine-looking spinach salad coated with scrumptious Brianna's poppyseed dressing, and strawberry salad drowned in marshmallows and all those yummy unhealthy things ;) Suzanne's incredible rolls made the meal as tasty as can be, with Grandpa's all-famous Crystal Light 'n' Sprite drink, courtesy to Steve and Ali.
To finish off the meal we were served ice cream cake that tasted so good! I warned Ali that next time I come to her house, she better have some prepared for me! ;)
I love family get-togethers - they really highlight my week! Well, I have no school tomorow! I love you all!

Party Party

This weekend has been quite the party. It started at a very high level at eight in the morning when Dad filled his little gold vehicle with two suitcases and chucked the boys in the car. After the moment the car was out of sight, the party took an ulimate high. Mom spent the afternooning cleaning, running errands, and all her usual motherly business while I tracked off to school. The day passed quickly, and I returned home on that wonderful Thursday afternoon, ready to kick it off.
First stop - Kneaders Bakery. The deluctable, Paradise-almost bakery very nearby at the closest Smith's Marketplace. The sun was setting, and we were one of the only ones there. I was excited to order a creamy agio soup dish (something like that), with a side of homeade potato chips, and an unforgettable Club sandwhich that my mother graciously shared with me. In the end, I caved into my immediate sugar obsession and got an eclaire. De-lish!

Next day, I slept in, went to school, and returned home calling and texting at full speed. My phone was acting up a little bit (keep that in mind for later!) but suddenly a party was announced and I grabbed my bathing suit and my friends Kaitlyn and MaKayla and I met up at the Peppermint Place, where shortly after, we walked to my house. We bought my friend Hannah a party gift and then booted off to her place. After going swimming and messing around, I dropped my phone. It was nothing serious, but it broke! Oh well, we're not to tell the Verizon people about this.
Next day, my mom and I planned an excellent GDO (Girls *Day* Out) where we decided to go see Confessions of a Shopaholic.. Review below!

I loved this movie - one of my top five! It was extremely clean, no bad language, and it had a very important, understandable, meaning to it. Through finance and importance of happiness. It found the deepest corners of reality and matched them up to realize what people with this kind of stuff are. When you see kids in clothes you can never afford, it tells and proves that they might not be able to afford them either. They just go and buy. It talks about expenses and saving and earning, but in a cute and clean-cut way. I loved it. I am going to buy it, and I recommend it to all those who would like a cute, funny, clean, laugh.

After seeing the movie, we ditched the theatre and ran to fix my phone. I was crossing my fingers that they would not find water damage (there was not supposed to be any though), or they would not return the phone free of charge. Luckily, I got the same phone free, without a single scratch, and we're lucky to be alive ;)

Love you all!
