Weekend Getaway // What’s in my bag?

Hey Guyyysss

Guess what’s this weekend……..Easter “holiday”

That means it’s a long weekend (no work Friday and Monday). However, that doesn’t matter to me, but for those employed *yay!*
This is my first Easter weekend being home since 2012; usually we (my family and I) go camping on one of the neighboring islands. However I felt like doing something different this year, so my best friend and I decided to go to Montserrat!
It was probably her idea initially and I just jumped at the opportunity. =)

Hey April!

Hey guys!

Welcome to a new month.  I like the feel of new months, because I think they’re a chance for a fresh start. As cliché as it may sound it’s a great time for a new beginning; forget all about what went wrong last month and focus on the current moment. All the goals you made at the beginning of the year, continue to work on them and set individual steps to reach them. Continue reading “Hey April!”

So besides my ‘Lessons learned from my Exes‘ post I don’t think I’ve ever spoken about relationships on here. Which by the way it doesn’t seem like I learned anything, but also because it’s a touchy/complicated thing for me.

However, Let’s talk! Continue reading “Let’s Talk: Relationships”

Get to Know Me Tag

Hey Guys!!

Due to the growth in followers/views recently, I decided to do a fun little ‘Get to Know Me Tag‘. I thought it would be a great way to reintroduce myself as well as let my new viewers know who I am. I don’t think I’ve ever done one of these before, so the only option previously was to visit my About Me page.
I found this tag online via Root Report and you’re welcome to try it out if you’d like.


(This is me currently, peep the hair growth)

Here we go, get to know me —>

5 Lessons of Blogging (+ tips)

Hey Guys,

Before we get into today’s post here are a few facts:

I’ve been blogging on and off for about three years now *whoa*.

I’ve had about three name changes finally sticking with ATBA.

When I first decided to start blogging I had no idea what I was doing.
(I don’t even recall doing research or anything; I just jumped and signed up on WordPress.)

I wish I could I remember my first post to share it with you guys, but overtime I’ve gone back to the earlier years and cleaned up some posts. Reading over old posts really makes you see how much you’ve grown and the way in which things change.

Anyway enough chit chatter here are my 5 Lessons of Blogging.

In My Kitchen // Creamy Chicken Meatballs

Hey Guys!!

Hope you had a great week, but guess what….
I’m finally back in the kitchen!

This meal was inspired by my craving for creamy pasta and my wants for something different to eat. If you checked out my other food related posts (Meatballs Take 2 , A Twist on “Meatballs”) you’ll see that meatballs aren’t new to me. Therefore I decided instead of a marinara sauce I was going to try a creamy cheesy sauce. This time I also popped my meatballs into the oven instead of frying them *but I think I left them a little bit too long, or the texture is just different since it’s chicken.*

Daily Reminder

Hey Guys!!

Today I wasn’t really feeling myself and decided to find an old journal I had to review the pages. It’s a journal from 2014 when I was just getting into the process of blogging/finding myself. I wrote a lot about different things happening in my life along with my goals for upcoming years. Basically, I wanted to look back at past stuff to see whether I was really growing or if any changes were actually happening in my life. Sometimes the reminders are good to show you that your life do has meaning and you’ll get through this.

Flipping through the pages I also found a little poem (words I wrote) which I wanted to share; as it needs to be not only a daily reminder for me, but for others as well.
