Tia or Sarah Palin

This is my Tia.  Her history teacher is convinced she looks just like Sarah Palin.  In fact, when he asks her questions in class, or calls the roll, he calls the name Sarah Palin instead of Tia.  He even called the principal over during parent teacher conference to see if the principal could tell who she looked like.  The principal had no idea.  The funny thing is, when Tia went to California for a hair show, some random man on the street stopped her and told her she looked like Sarah Palin.  So, you can vote.  She figures it is good her history teacher thinks she looks like Sarah Palin because she gets away with turning things in late for full credit sometimes.  I think he's just a sucker for Tia's smile and her usual good humor.

Tia went to Preference on Friday.  She drove to pick up her date and so we didn't see him before the date, and then she dropped him off before she came home and so we never saw him.  We have met him before since he is one of Tia's friends.  Eventually I'll get to see pictures of them both together.  She demonstrated their dramatic poses which was good entertainment.  She had a beautiful corsage that matched her dress very well.  They went with a large group that was a different group than Tia originally planned to go with, but that is all a long, dramatic, frustrating tale of woe -- except that Tia and Tyler did enjoy the group they went with.

So who do I see when I look at Tia?  I see a fun, kind, faithful, and caring daughter who has a fabulous sense of humor and a good sense of fun.  I haven't once looked at her and wondered why Sarah Palin was here visiting.

I've never once thought she looked like Sarah Palin :) the glasses might be similar - that's all I'm seeing... but I haven't been staring at pictures of S.P. lately so I'm not a well informed judge :)

That's like me having two occasions years apart where complete strangers told me I looked like Melissa Gilbert! (Halfpint on Little House...)Completely random and nobody else could see it.
I love Tia's dress and I'm sure I'd love to hear the dramatic story of the switcheroo group date.

I say she looks like her mama!! Her dress is beautiful!

Maybe if she wore her hair up and a colorful business suit I could see the resemblance. Shame on her for working the system, though. She is beautiful no matter who she looks like.

Great post! I don't see the Sarah Palin in her, myself, except that she's a cute girl wearing cute glasses.

Her hair needs to be brown, then let me see! She does look a lot like you though! What a pretty dress and pretty gal.

I agree with the others. I think it is mostly her glasses. And Tia is much more intelligent!! She looked so lovely for Preference!!
