I've posted the last couple posts from my iPhone. Now, I love my iPhone, but I don't consider it a suitable blogging tool. I prefer my Macbook with its full keyboard. I was able to get internet at my new place today after my landlord dealt with some run-around from the company. He left his cable box here, so there was an account here in his name, preventing me from getting any service set up. Anyways, I was able to read the last week's worth of posts from the blogs I follow FINALLY.
I noticed that my pen pal included me in her post about the Liebster blog award. It's a way for small blogs to share some info about themselves and link to other blogs. Here is my reply.

9. Do you have a nickname? My favorite nickname is from my best friend.

She's recently changed my nickname to Dr. Chip though.
10. Why did you start blogging? To just have a new hobby and find vegan recipes to learn how to cook.
11. Do you take pictures of your food even if you don't share it on your blog? No, they all go on the blog.
I don't really know who to tag in something like this, because I follow most blogs anonymously and rarely comment. Anyways, I'll finally be able to post some photos of my new place in Houston and the food I've been enjoying lately.
