In what seems to have turned into a tradition, I present to you 2017’s cookie memes! I have to admit – I was a little unmotivated this year. I think it’s because I churned out so many last year.

I haven’t been able to watch much college football earlier this year, so I was very happy to see my beloved Georgia Bulldogs beat the Great Horny Toads of TCU along with some other great bowl games.
