Sarah & Kim met in high school while hiding in the locker room to escape physical activity. Five minutes into their first conversation they made plans to play video games and drink chocolate milk together.

They have been best friends for almost 20 years! That makes for a big collection of shared stories, inside jokes, embarrassments, triumphs, tragedies, and awkward moments. A collection that could graduate from high school and vote.

Three words that describe both Sarah & Kim: Feminist1, Childfree2, Nerdfighter3. Or alternatively, Tina Belcher Fangirls.

Cookiepocket.org is a place to post the good stuff from the week: lists, lessons, recipes, comments on pop culture and current events, and the general promotion of things that are helpful, interesting, cute, and/or fun. We post every Friday with a week’s worth of our favs.
