‘Hey Girl’ Contest

Those of you who are on Pinterest have probably seen the pics of Ryan Gosling with catchy DIY and homeschooling captions on them. All of these pictures start with the words “Hey Girl.”

These are super funny…but I honestly don’t feel right about posting another guy’s picture on my Pinterest board (or anywhere else, for that matter). If the roles were reversed, I don’t think I would be all that fond of my husband posting pictures of other women…especially beautiful women! Instead, I thought it would be fun to post pictures of my sweet husband with similar captions (plus, I think he’s way cuter than Ryan Gosling anyhow). Here are the two I’ve posted this past week:




So, I decided with Valentines Day around the corner, a little contest would be the perfect way for us to brag on our spouses in a silly and funny way. Here’s what you need to do.


1. Choose a picture of your spouse. If you’re not currently married, no worries! Just choose a picture of the person who helps you most with your children.

2. Add a caption (you can use Picnik for free). Make sure it begins with the words, “Hey Girl” (or “Hey Boy” for the 3 dads who read this blog).

3. Upload and share it on my Facebook wall (just choose ‘share photo’ right underneath the photos on the page). I’ll choose my top 10 favorites on Tuesday and post them here on the blog. The voting will then begin next Tuesday (the 7th) and end on Friday morning (the 10th) at 10am CST. Be sure and read my official rules for giveaways.


The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to the restaurant of their choice to take their spouse out to dinner!!


Wait! Before you start the mad dash looking for the ‘perfect picture’…here are a few rules:

The picture must be kind (and appropriate, for that matter). We want to build our spouses up and show them how much we appreciate them!

-Only 1 entry per person…so make it good! :)

-Get permission from your spouse (or the person whose picture you are sharing) first. Make sure this will not embarrass him/her.

-By posting the picture to my Facebook wall, you are giving me the permission to repost it on my blog.


Can’t wait to see all the fun photos you share!




  1. Love this idea, girl!! My hubby and I were cracking up last night as we were reading through them…and he would start whispering some of them. The laminating one was the biggest laugh!

  2. THAT is the picture of a good Daddy. Holding a baby, falling asleep while reading to his baby. We are blessed women to have these amazing husbands, aren’t we?

  3. And can I just say, I tried to sign up for Pinterest and it totally freaked me out. I think it’s creepy! Because there are all these pictures in front of you, and who knows where they came from or who these people are! But, Facebook sort of freaks me out too, because I’m weird like that. Does anyone else feel this way or I am the only one in America?

  4. Ahhh, I love this!! I, too, feel SUPER weird posting “sexy” pictures of movie stars on Pinterest. Funny? Yes. Appropriate? Absolutely not.
