My little sister is so brave.
Today she asked a boy to Banquet (that's what her high school calls prom). She asked him via cookie. Staying up late to make the cookie was so much fun.* We spent the night giggling and occasionally stopping to ask, "What if he says no?" This question weighed so heavily on me all night and morning as I waited for her text telling me his response.
And he said yes!
I was SO relieved. I'm excited for Emily and super proud of her! I gotta say, throughout this whole process I just kept thinking that I'm so glad I'm not a boy. Call me old fashioned, but I typically expect guys to do the asking. Now I understand why so many guys want to be somewhat certain the girl will say yes. Putting yourself out there is scary! Major props to every guy out there who has asked a girl out. Although I was terrified of my sister coming home with a sad heart if he said no, I am so proud of her either way for taking that jump! Isn't she amazing?
Have you experienced the I'm-nervous-for-you side of things or are you the one usually asking? Did you ask your date to prom in a creative way?
*Funny to think, 6 years ago my older sister helped me do the same thing! But it was 0% scary because I was already in a relationship with the boy =] Oh, and we completely failed at making the cookies the first try. We never did figure out why that first batch didn't turn out ...
