Guess what day it is????

Guess what day it is? Guess what day it is????
No, it's not hump day,lol...

It's the first day of my birthday week!!!!!!!


I used to really hate my birthday.
Not because I am getting older, but because I really
don't like to be the center of attention. 
I hated that day for years!!!
Until...... My friend Laura showed me how to fix it.
That's it.

I LOVED it :) 

So, on the week of my birthday, I do as many 
random acts of kindness (RAK) as possible.
Best. Birthdays. Ever. 

Once again this year, I am inviting you to join in :) 
Please, do one RAK this week, and report back by commenting on this post. 
Nothing would make me happier than to share the joy of doing 
something nice for someone else!

Those who report back today (Monday) and leave a comment, will be entered in the following random

(And P.S. I am skinny too :) )

The winner will be announced on Tuesday!!!!

Now my first RAK.... is for you!!!!
Free Graphics!!!!

I can't wait to hear from you!!!

Adopt A classroom Winner!

Congratulations Nicole!
I can't wait to meet your class :)
Please email me at

I am so thankful to all who entered. Reading the entries reminds me
that there is a world outside of my own. I am so blessed.

Please know that this was a totally random drawing.
Thank heavens that I didn't have to choose,
because I wish I could adopt you all.

I have been so impressed by those who passed on entering because 
other classes needed it more. You are
shining examples who lead the children with grace and love.

To those who entered, I am so proud of you for doing the best 
to make sure your kids have everything they need to learn.
They are lucky kiddos to have such wonderful teachers :)

2nd Annual Melonheadz Classroom Adoption!!!!


Last year's class was AwEsOmE!!!!!
I can honestly say it was one of the most rewarding things
I have done to date!
Mrs. Bain's 3rd grade class of sweeties
were so kind to let me be a part of their classroom.
The pictures and notes they took time to send to me are
some of my greatest prizes :)
Hopefully they will always remember
that someone in Utah loves them.

So, here's all the deets about the adoption:

* Must be inside the US
(I'm sorry! The shipping on the boxes is expensive)

* Receipts for the $100 for classroom supplies
must be copied and emailed back to me

* Your class must be able to accept a gift
box every month

That's it!!!!!

A winner will be randomly chosen on Monday,
August 18, 2014.

How can you enter?
Leave me a comment below on why your 
class deserves to win:)

****One entry per classroom please****
(Multiple entries will be disqualified. All classrooms
deserve a chance)

Good luck my friends!!!!
I can't wait to meet my new class :)
