Sweet Frog and Prom Dates

So, I get this cryptic message yesterday from my husband's little brother, Greg:

"Can I come over real quick?  I need to ask you a favor"

And before I could reply that he could certainly come over, but I didn't know how many favors I could do with my migraine, I got a call.  It was Greg.

He needed some advice on asking this girl that was "just a friend" to prom.  Greg didn't go to prom the year before and I've been a big push on him to go, just so he doesn't wonder what it was like.

After much deliberation, we decided that he should go to Sweet Frog, where his date-hopeful works, take her flowers, and ask her to their Senior Prom. 

 He didn't want to go alone, and I was kind of excited for him, so I tagged along.

We decided to get the flowers from Trader Joe's because I love their selection.  And we spent forever trying to figure out which flowers would say friends and not dating, because, apparently most people are interested in dating seriously the people they take to prom.  Who knew?

When I was in high school, we didn't do all of this flowers and thinking, and everyone went as friends, unless you had a boyfriend.  

Anyway, we figured he had a 70 percent chance of walking away with a prom date, so we snapped this picture:

She said yes!  And she even asked him what color to wear!  He told her she could wear whatever color she liked.  I had meant to snap a few pictures of him with his date after he asked, but it was so awkward, that I opted not to.

More to come on Senior Prom 2012.

After Sweet Frog, I went home and disappeared from the world.   My husband eventually lulled me out of migraine-land with a surprise sick supper in bed, some medicine, and my addiction to Game of Thrones.

What was your prom experience like? 

Did anyone else watch GOT last night?  What did you think?  OH MY GOODNESS, I think this season is so good!
