Ultimate Blog Party Twenty-Twelve

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Untitled-3copy Hello to all of you trickling in from The Ultimate Blog Party! Please feel free to introduce yourselves by leaving a comment! I’m also hosting a timely PartyLite giveaway below!

I’m Sheena, twenty-something mom of a silly almost 4 year old boy.

I married my junior high sweetheart.

I’m a firm believer in following your passions, and living life to the fullest. I don’t like conforming to standards or trying to fit in. I do what I want and make no apologies.

In the past, I’ve faked the funk as a blogger and vow to never ever do it again.

Sophistishe consists of family stories and random, quirky, introverted thoughts of mine, revelations, and hobbies.

I’m partial to photography, so I make sure to insert pretty pictures into my posts so people will read them :-).

I thrive in warm weather. Cold weather makes me grumpy. I loooove the tropics.

When buying jeans, they must absolutely make my backside look scrumptious. No exceptions.

I treasure my personal space. Ideally, I’d like to live in a secluded area away from neighbors.

Pinterest is my happy place, although I’m not loving the new layout.

I love collecting nail polish, always have since I was a little girl.

Want more? Check out my about page and the posts nestled on my sidebar under “Posts to Read”.

    I need that diffuser in my life. I just moved into an older house and I’ve been burning sage and candles to change the essence of this place.

    • Reply April 21, 2012


      I didn’t know you could burn sage. *off to research that*

    I’m not an official blogger, so I hope this counts. I love how you blog honestly and I married my middle school sweetheart. too. However, at the time he was not my sweetheart. I thought he was a nerd.

      Thanks for commenting, Kimberly. Luckily hubby and I weren’t in the same class, so we weren’t around each other enough to grow tired of each other, lol.

    It is beyond cute that you married your high school sweet heart. All the boys in my middle school annoyed the snot outta me so I don’t know if I’d marry them today LOL!!

    Okay I just found your blog and I think I may be in love with it. I love the way you describe yourself as a blogger, that’s pretty much my thoughts on the way I blog.
