As I said, I've been pretty bored today. Housemom418 and Housemom322 are at camp right now, and they're pretty much the only ones I frequently see on Animal Jam, so I've been wandering around on Animal Jam doing random things... Looked at Cami's den... I actually saw one of Custard's masterpieces there, and also one I sent her. That was cool... I slept in until like 9:30 AM today... Ate breakfast (egg-toast-ham mashup thing)... Ate lunch (hot dogs and leftover homemade potato salad from the night before)... Read my Bible... Tended to my camp wounds... (Sunburns, chapped lips, blister on my foot)
And that's basically it
I'm just so bored
SO HERE I AM POSTING ABOUT MY VACATION THAT WAS A MONTH AGO
First of all, I'd like to apologize for not doing Animal Jam posts in like,
Probably two months or more. XD I'm just getting kinda tired with AJ. There's new stuff all the time, but not really blog-worthy stuff I guess? Since this blog is both an Animal Jam and a Christian blog, I guess I've just been sticking to more of the Christian posts, and Christian music posts. Everyone else does Animal Jam posts, so it all balances each other out I suppose. XD I just find it much easier to write Christian posts than Animal Jam posts.
Without further ado, let's get started with today's post! Today I'm going to be sharing a few more concert pictures (for KING & COUNTRY picture is included to get your attention, mewhahaha), and the merchandise I got at the concert!
Another picture of Jon just for good measure.
Will You hear my call? Will you be there when I fall? (Lyrics continued on my Hawk Nelson t-shirt. :))
A never before seen for KING & COUNTRY picture everybodyyy
This was the Tenth Avenue North, Mallary Hope, and Hannah Kerr meet and greet me and my dad did! From left to right is, Jason Jamison, Ruben Juarez, Jeff Owen (Cyborg, or half-and-half because he is, as Mike says, "Half human, half robot, half Irish, half Asian. That's a whole lot of halves, but if you do the math, you'll see it adds up. We call him half-and-half for short."), Brendon Shirley, Mike Donehey (Dimitri from How To Train Birds. Hehehehehe), Mallary Hope, and Hannah Kerr.
During that meet and greet, my mom surprised me and got me a Hawk Nelson poster! Obviously this is already up in my room. XDD
You say all of this time and I've never let you down, I carried you then I'll carry you here and now. So don't loose heart and don't forget, My work in you ain't finished yet. So hold onto me now I'll never let you down... I'll never let you down.
I got my first Hawk Nelson shirt at the concert, eeeeeeeeeee
I wanna be different I wanna be changed, till all of me is gone, and all that remains, is a fire so bright, the whole world will see that there's something different, so come and be different in me.
Also my first Micah Tyler shirt! Basically since the first time I saw him in concert I've wanted his merch. XDD
No, this t-shirt doesn't say "Ca se crio chna iche". XDD It's Gaelic (Irish) for "It Is Finished"! This is for sure not my first We Are Messengers t-shirt... I feel like my whole closet is mainly made up of We Are Messengers shirts. Sooooo not obsessed with them. TOTALLY NOT
My VIP lanyards! I'm not even joking, as soon as I woke up on Saturday morning, I looked over at my Tenth Avenue North lanyard from Friday to make sure I wasn't having some outrageous dream where I met Jon from Hawk Nelson, Tenth Avenue North, Mallary Hope, and Hannah Kerr. XDDD I've seriously have had so many dreams of meeting my favorite artists that I juuuust had to double check. I've also had several several dreams that I've gone to Louie Giglio's church, Passion City Church. It always seems to look the same... Extremely large, with a really weird looking kids area. XDD
CD's! I got the physical copy of the We Are Messengers CD Saturday at Lifeway Christian Bookstores, and Micah Tyler gave us his CD.
Micah Tyler even autographed it for us, which was super nice! He gave that to us because my dad wanted to get in contact with his management for an interview, so he wrote his management's email on the lyric side of the album. I flipped it around though, because I'm not sure if his management's email is out to the public or not. I no like leaking stuffs. XDD
I bought a Tenth Avenue North hat! Everybody's merchandise is so expensive, so I literally had to save up money for a few months to get enough, and I was still like $10 short on money. XDD
My Lifeway bag, and a devotional by Louie Giglio my mom bought for me!
Random GCU freebies. The concert was held at Grand Canyon University arena, so we stayed at Grand Canyon University hotel since they're only about a 5 minute drive away from each other! They had GCU magazines I believe outside the arena, and we got the lanyard and pen from their table at the concert. The GCU water bottle was from the hotel. They give you those when you first check in, and whenever you request it at the front desk! They had really good service at the hotel. Next to the water bottle is a GCU lip balm! I really could of used that the first night, because my lips got really chapped from singing for some reason. o.O
Free Elevate booklets, and some cards telling you to put your images up on social media using the hashtag, "#ELEVATEAZ". Next time I'm on my mom's Instagram I wanna see if anyone actually did that... XDD They were saying it almost every night at the concert, so they probably did.
Funny story why I got these... Sunday night me and my mom swore we saw the back of Branan Murphy at the concert. He was playing at the concert Saturday night, so we thought he might of stayed the next day or something. My parents also swore they saw him at the hotel on Saturday, so we literally sat outside when we got back Sunday night waiting to see him. He uh- never came. But while we were waiting I got these inside the computer room. XDD
Air1 freebies! The top item is a bumper sticker for your car, and below that is an Air1 fan for your phone! Next to that is a card telling you how to win a custom Air1 skateboard. We didn't win, but when we were standing at the Air1 table, we saw the kid who won it! The skateboard looked super cool.
Family Life Radio freebies! The top item is a cup my mom got while she was waiting for me and my dad at the Tenth Avenue North meet and greet, and below that is a Family Life Radio bag. I used it to carry my merch around. XD Then below that is a pop socket! I was wanting a pop socket, so I was really happy when I got this. I put it on my iPhone (my iPhone 4 that barely works..), and I love it!
There was a table at the concert for an Arizona foster organization, called "Arms of Love". We got a lip balm and a highlighter from their table. I never took a picture of the highlighter though..
We got a note in our hotel room from the housekeeper! Me being who I am, wrote a note back (XDD) and wrote Bible verses all over it.
Last but not least, a Jordan Feliz bracelet my mom got me, that says "Can I Get A Witness?" on it! It's from his song "Witness".
Now onto the autographs!... If the email of them will ever come through... And if my mail will ever open... Darn now I've gotta turn my computer off and back on... (#FourYearOldComputerProblems)
After having had to reorganize my desktop because it got messed up when I shut down my computer, and having to get all my tabs back, I'm back, and now here are the autographs. XDD
Jon from Hawk Nelson's autograph! My dad was kinda joking when I asked for an autograph, and was like, "Do you have some special verse you put on autographs?" and he was like, "Not really". But I got one anyways, so, YAY. XDD I loved looking up the verses artists put on their autograph. :D
Autographs from Tenth Avenue North, Mallary Hope, and Hannah Kerr. I can really only make out Mike's, Mallary's, and Hannah's. XD
Micah Tyler's amazing smiley face autograph! XD
Jonny Diaz, Darren, and Chris from Stars Go Dim's autographs!
David Dunn's autograph!
Mia Koehne's autograph! I thought that was sweet that she took time to write me a little message.
Justin Unger's autograph!
I'm still super mad I didn't get Joel's autograph... Hopefully they'll be at Elevate next year and I'll get his autograph then? XDD
I hope you enjoyed today's post! What was your favorite part? Be sure to comment down below!
Next in this vacation post series, I'm going to try to figure out how to get the videos on here. I was having a lot of trouble trying to send the videos to myself, but hopefully I'll figure out a solution and get them to you guys soon.
Here's todays Bible verse!
Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God's right hand.
When we accept Christ into our lives, we need to fully fix our eyes on God, and not our old ways of life.
God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.
P.S. Just a heads up, I miiiight not be posting on Thursday, because we're having my niece from Wednesday night until Thursday morning/afternoon-ish. If I post it'll probably just be short. XD For sure not as long as this post. o.o
