Home Decor Haul ❤

As you all know, Trevor and I bought a fixer upper! We have slowly but surely been getting to the fixing it up part, haha, and I thought I would share a quick video on some home decor items I picked up the other day! Enjoy XO  ❤

Cherry Tomato Avocado Salad

I have made this salad countless times this summer, and I plan on making it many more! I have received SO many messages on shap chat (come find me @alyciagrayce) about the recipe, so I decided to share it on the blog so everyone can have it. It is the easiest salad ever, and will instantly impress anyone who eats it. The combination of flavors is one of my favorites, and leaves you feeling refreshed. This is the perfect side dish to bring to a get together and I hope you get some use out of it this summer!

Cherry Tomato Avocado Salad

4 cups avocados, diced medium (about 3-4 avocados)
2 cups grape tomatoes or 2 cups cherry tomatoes (I like to dice mine in half)
2 cups cucumbers, peeled and diced medium (about one cucumber)
1 cup red onion, diced small (about one onion)
4 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped 
2 teaspoons fresh garlic, minced 
2 tablespoons lime juice 
14 cup olive oil
fresh black pepper


Baby Einstein 2-in-1 Lights & Sea Activity Gym & Saucer™ + GIVEAWAY!

Once Ella got out of the sleep all day newborn stage, it became pretty clear very quickly that she needed some kind of entertainment if I wasn't going to be holding her. Seeing that I couldn't hold her all day long, I needed something that could do that for me! We started off with a playmat, which was great because she could roll around and play with the toys above her. However she would often want to sit up, or have the feeling like she was upright. This only increased as she got older and she was bored of being on her back or stomach. When we got the Baby Einstein 2-in-1 Lights & Sea Activity Gym & Saucer it was a game changer! This was the crème de la crème of activity!

Ella was instantly attracted to all the different toys, lights and music going on. There is so much variety within the saucer that your little one stays entertained. For example, each toy on the saucer offers a deeper dimension of play. They are unique and require her to do different tasks; for example having her lift the clam up to find the pearl, and then having the pearl be a button she can push and it makes a sound! She loves that. The tray table offers an oceanful of activities to keep little hands busy, including a whale popper with beads that spin, a clamshell toy and bead chaser, spinning crab, bendy leaf stalk toy, and a fish bead spinner.  

Lunaby Baby - Vintage Baby Rompers

I wanted to give a little shout out to something I have been working on. These adorable vintage rompers from Lunaby Baby! These baby rompers are a nod to the past; with a classic romper cut, and touch of lace. They can be paired with overalls, leggings, tights... or simply bare legged for your little one to cool off during the hot months. The light, breathable fabric is perfect for summer! They come in gingham, and polka dots.

The rompers are only $14.95 and I wanted to let you guys know about it in case you wanted to pick some up for the 4th! These colors just scream Fourth of July and Summer.
