Tell it all Tuesdays (Tiana edition)...

Hey peeps!! I haven't done a post in a while, so I'm a little rusty. My daughters 13th birthday was Sunday. I'm so proud of that girl, that I don't know what to do with myself. I look at her getting older and growing into a wonderful young lady everyday (I won't even speak on the fact that she has about a half inch to go before she's taller than me). Thank you guys for allowing me to share my life, style and family with you. Anyhoo... this Tell it all Tuesday will be dedicated to my "Chic-a-dee".... I hope she's cool with me sharing my nickname for her with everyone. =D

Hubby and I had Tiana at the tender ages of 19 & 20 (I was 19, he 20). We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into.

She loves to draw, design clothes, knit, ice skate and hang at the mall with her friends (don't worry, she'll be getting a job ASAP for that mall part =D).

Tiana is an awesome writer. She's won statewide awards for her writing, and has even been published!! 

She loves her natural hair, and has decided to stay that way for now. Cornrows, Afro's and twist-outs are what she loves. I think the level of confidence that my baby girl has is unprecedented. I know how hard it can be to maintain your confidence at such a young age. She never ceases to amaze me.

While she doesn't consider herself to be a fashionista... she has great "Tiana Style". I tell her all the time when she puts an outfit together, "Wow, you're looking very Tiana today!" Her response, "Thank you!!".

And to top it all off, she's the best big sister that a little brother could have. I could say so much more, but I don't want to make this post the longest ever. lol! Can you tell that I'm a proud momma?

Until next time...
