all about me, the hubz, and this blog :)


Hi! My name is Alycia Crowley pronounced crow (like a bird) -lee. I started this blog when I moved to Utah for school and my Dad, who was an avid blogger, kept bugging me to start one. My family has always been incredibly close, and they wanted me to give them more than just a phone call update. So I obliged, but didn't post that often. Then one hot night in August I met a cute boy named Trevor and all of a sudden felt like I had something to blog about. Nine months later we were eating dinner watching an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie and Trevor got down on one knee and proposed. After I said, UM, YES! Trevor got up, hugged me tight and said,  "We are going to have so much fun!" That has become a motto in our little family, we think life should be a party and want our life together to be just that. Hence the blog title Crowley Party.

While this blog started out documenting our life together, it has since grown into a creative outlet where I can share everything from the daily happenings of my life, to my personal style and favorite beauty products.

I also have a YouTube Channel as an extension of my blog where I post about my life, style, and beauty products.

And if you aren't sick of me yet, you can also find me at...
Twitter @alyciagrayce
Instagram @alyciagrayce

Basically, if you search Alycia Grayce, you can find me anywhere. 
❤️ CONTACT ME.



Still want to know more? Well, I do aim to please. Here is more of the nitty gritty...

alycia.
I am a sister, daughter, aunt and wife. I have a big family whom I love. I was born in Canada but raised in San Diego, California - I am a California girl through and through. I am loud, I enjoy eating, cuddling, movies, reading, working out, the beach, lacrosse, and anything the involves sunshine. In fact, sunshine was my nick name in college. I like donuts, ice cream, cheeseburgers & pizza. I could, and have, eaten a box of mac n cheese every single day for a straight week. I also love the color of mac n cheese :) I love the smell of the sea, my husband, &all that glitters. I have a serious case of wanderlust & love celebrating life! I graduated from the University of Utah with a Social Science Teaching Composite degree and a Teaching History Minor. I have a passion for education, learning, culture, travel & pretty much everything the world has to offer me! I have spent the last several years working in Marketing, putting my husband through Law School. He recently graduated, started a job at a firm, bought a house, and now we are both working and wondering if this "we are now adults" thing is really actually happening! Speaking of being adults, we found out this past December that we are going to be parents! We will be welcoming a little girl this August and are pinching ourselves that this is our life right now :)

trevor.
We don't hear too much from trevor on this blog. Maybe someday if we are all really lucky he will grace us with some words. While on that subject, I might as well tell you that Trevor is a man of few words. His passion in life is music, guitar to be exact. Our apartment is covered with guitars, and recording equipment. Trevor grew up in St.George, Utah and is a lover of the hot heat and anything that includes water and being outside a.k.a skim boarding, wake boarding, boating... you get the idea? Trevor likes to eat whole pizzas by himself, but don't let that fool you, most of the time he is a total health nut! (which is good since I have the mac-n-cheese addiction thing going on) Trevor served an LDS mission in South Africa, and graduated from the University of Utah in Political Science and Jazz Guitar
Performance. You can usually spot Trevor in a crowd pretty easily, just look for holes in his t-shirt and clothes (he wears things until they literally fall apart) a 5-o-clock shadow that grows back every 24 hours, and a pretty impressive cow lick on the side of his head that resembles Alfalfa :) He recently graduated from Law School and became an Attorney. He loves his job, and is constantly an example to me of what incredible hard work can accomplish!

  41. Your husband sounds so much like mine! He is very much into music, he keeps his favorite guitar by our bed! I had to fight him to stop wearing gym shorts to law school, but it finally worked! And the beard thing, I totally get. My husband will shave in the morning and by the end of the day it looks like he didn't!

  42. Ok, I found you while watching some FT4 Polar on YouTube and it amazed me because I want to get into better shape, etc. I'm bipolar and it means that the meds are doing crazy stuff to my body.
    But, hey! I'm LDS TOO!!! living in Venezuela. I'm graduated historian, currently teaching at Universidad Central de Venezuela, History Deparment. I'm 28 years old, single, two cats, living in a country where NOBODY gets "the Mormon thing" hahahahaha.
    Well, great to read you. I hope to get in shape.
