Week of 1 January 2016

Welcoming 2016, Netflix binges, and new challenges.

Hi, Cookie-pals! We’re re-launching today and are so glad to be back! We’re really into newsletters and lists, so we’re switching gears here and plan to post once weekly, on Fridays, with a big ol’ recap of the week containing all of our favorites & important bits, ranging from pop culture to food recs to current events and beyond.

It finally got cold in Dallas recently (after a pretty epic night of tornadoes and stress), so I’m in full-on cozy by the fireplace, Netflix binging mode. I think I might go mega-moody and re-watch The Fall soon. I shared some tips for making the most of your Netflix profile recently here.

Speaking of Netflix, be honest: On a scale of 1 to reading the Reddit theories, how into Making a Murderer are you? Because WHOA. After watching the entire series, and then reading some info about the case that wasn’t presented in it, I’m not sure of who’s guilty of what or not, but I’m at least confident that our justice system failed, there was some shady shit going down with law enforcement there and that kid’s lawyer is a piece of garbage.

Are you on Instagram? Have you made your #2015bestnine yet? It’s a fun & easy recap of 2015.

Here’s mine:
