To Go or Not to Go.......????


My gorgeous Texas granddaughter (I'll call her "B") is a Sophomore in high school this year, which is very hard for this Grammy to believe. It only seems like a few years ago when she was running around in diapers.... Mercy Me!!!!

Anyhow, I got an email from my daughter-in-law yesterday tell me that "B" had gotten a very interesting invitation to this year's Homecoming Dance at her school. Seems that her boyfriend ("R") made a huge sign and hung it up at their school ---asking her if she would go to Homecoming with him... Smart guy!!!! I'm sure that after he went to that much effort, "B" just HAD to say YES--since she didn't want to hurt his feelings. (HA HA HA-----She did say YES---but I'm sure she would have, no matter how he would have asked her.)

Isn't that a creative way to ask a young lady to a dance????? I just wanted to share this with you... Below is the picture of the two of them ---and the big sign... Neat, huh????






Above is a picture of my gorgeous granddaughter, "B", taken last year when she was all dressed up for the dance. I cannot wait to see pictures of her all dressed up this year ---since, believe it or not, this girl gets more and more beautiful with each passing day....

Congrats to "R" for being so creative, and congrats to "B" for getting such a terrific invitation to the big dance. Back in my day (many moons ago), we had proms ---but I never got an invitation like "B" did.... Did you?????



Taken in spring of 1960---wonder who this young gal is?????? (I was all dressed up for the Senior Prom!)

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hugs,

You and your grandaughter are very lovely. I hope she has a wonderful time with her special young man.

That's such a sweet story, and what a lovely granddaughter you have.
Back in the sixties we looked more like bridesmaids, don't you think?
Happy Sunday.
Sunny :)

Arkansas Patti said...

Clever boy R is but he may have started something. If they continue, each stunt will have to out do the last. Hope he has a big bag of tricks.
Lovely girl, clever fellow, what is not to love.
My prom dates were not very original.

mountain.mama said...

My daughters got all manners of creative invitations to dances, but back in my day we didn't do that either. I think today's way looks like more fun! Your granddaughter is beautiful and you are obviously quite proud of her, as is right and natural.

Rosa said...

Sounds like a keeper!! How sweet!!

SmilingSally said...

She is a pretty one.

Cedar ... said...

Betsy: Never gave an invation like that. Girls didn't invite back then.

Bill S. said...

Have a great week!!!!!!

Lola said...

What an ingenious way to ask a young lady to a dance. Bravo to him. A very pretty young lady at that. Looks a lot like her Grandma.
Hope they have a ball.
I didn't get to go to my prom. Did get to go to a Deem a Lay dance once. That was nice.

Cheryl said...

Your darling granddaughter sure has her grandmother's looks! What a touching and very sweet post, and what a nice young man "R" must be. The photo of the two was priceless! Ah to be that age again, not that it was all that long ago....And Betsy you were beautiful in your Prom dress!

Daisy said...

What a sweet story about your granddaughter, Betsy. I hope they have a wonderful time at the dance. She is beautiful and so are you! You both look so lovely. :D

Jen said...

Easy to see where B inherited her good looks. ;)
Your prom dress is awesome. Someday I will post mine. you will surely get a laugh out of that one. ha!

Diane said...

Cute, cute granddaughter. I CAN see the resemblence to you too. Hope it's a wonderful time for her.

Katherine Aucoin said...

Very creative way. Your granddaughter is something special and she's pretty just like the beautiful girl in the prom picture. I know exactly where she gets he good looks!

Wendy said...

What a beautiful granddaughter you have!!! I can't wait to see her pics this year. R is a keeper alright. What a fun way to ask B to the dance? No, I never had an invitation like that. In fact, I didn't even have a date for my high school prom. I had to be "matched up" with somebody, because in those days, we didn't go single. Today, apparently some of them do.

Ooo la la - what a knockout, Betsy, you look like the queen of the prom!!

Kelly said...

Ahhh....how exciting for them, and your granddaughter is gorgeous! I like the photo of you in your prom dress as well.

ROSIDAH said...

Wow, that's an incredible way to be asked out to the prom! I hope they will have a splendid time together. Your granddaughter is a beauty, and I can see where it comes from. Beautiful prom photo of you! Hugs and love :)

Meems said...

Betsy,
Your prom dress looks more like a wedding dress... how times have changed. And, yes, it sure does fly. First with our own children then with our grandchildren... it is hard to believe.

Your Granddaughter is beautiful and it's good to see her boyfriend going to some trouble to woo her... a lost art it seems. Good for her.

Cher said...

you look awesome on your prom dress, Betsy! i bet B got his looks from you, she's very pretty!

Rose said...

He is a brave young man to go so public! He might be worth hanging on to!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Had I had an invitation like this, I would still be blogging about it today!!!!
She is gorgeous!

Snowbird said...

What a neat invitation. Clever guy. And yes, your granddaughter is a beauty. My oldest grandchild is also 15--almost 16--and driving. That just can't be possible!!

Cookie said...

What a lucky girl!
and waht a beautiful picture!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Your granddaughter is very pretty. But hey! She has inherited some great genes from her grandmother!

Janie said...

Both you and your granddaughter are awfully cute. Her date found a fun way to ask her out.
My kids all went to high school in Utah and the custom is to have elaborate "asks" and "answers," and no two were ever the same. The kids had a lot of fun with it.
