Those, my friends, are cake pops that I did not make. That tasty one you’re staring at is a cookies n’cream cake pop with Oreo® Cookies. (Andy’s fave!) I wish I was this talented. Really, I do. I want to bake, and have Andy tell me what an amazing baker I am. But, alas you can’t be amazing at everything, right? ;) I’m just happy to know that I can order these puppies up from Shari’s Berries at a moments notice and have them shipped anywhere in 1-2 days! They have tons of variety and they come fresh to your door step. Perfect for gifts, special occasions, or just a yummy treat at home! Check out this cuteness:

Those are brownie pops! They’re fudgy-ier and richer than cake pops! And those animals kill me. Maxwell might need a Zoo birthday! You know I like to keep things simple, so I just grabbed some brightly colored pom pom’s and a white cake stand and voila, I’m so fancy! The cake pops come with sticks in them and they stand perfectly. So, I really did just un wrap each cake pop from it’s plastic wrapper and stick it on the cake stand.

Check out this impressive packaging to ensure freshness at your doorstep:

1. The cardboard box is basically an insulated cooler.

2. That’s an icepack that was way cold when I opened the box.

3. The actual goodies are wrapped up cute with a card!

Maxwell wants a treat. Maybe on your one year birthday, bud! Shari’s Berries also sells chocolate covered strawberries, yum!

In cake pop land, there are tons of yummy flavors: red velvet, chocolate, vanilla, peanut butter with Reese’s®, and cookies n’cream with Oreo® Cookies. You’re looking at a vanilla cake pop and one of the animal brownie pops! Both make me drool, ha!

Speaking of birthday parties, cake pops make serving and clean up a cinch! Here’s a cute video about cake pop envy:

Easy teacher gift

Note: This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® Elmer’s and Wet Ones, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #CraftandCleanUp

As a high school teacher for 4 years, I can’t say that I ever got a first day of school teacher gift. I do think it’s a very sweet idea and as a mama, I plan on giving teacher lots of love! This fun Elmer’s and Wet Ones combo pack is an easy way to start the year off on the right foot.  This gift is super easy to put together. Y’all know I like easy, and that I love, love cheesy sayings, ha! {I’ve got tons of cheesy Valentine sayings!}

Easy teacher gift for the 1st day of school


Putting this 1st day of school teacher gift together is super simple. First print out the free gift tag printable here:

Fill in the grade section of the printable and use scissors or a cutting board to cut each gift tag out. Then hole punch and use pretty ribbon to tie it on the Elmer’s and Wet Ones combo pack gift. Voila. And that’s it!
