Hey Girl… I know what I want for Valentines Day.

This post has two parts. First, I’m guest posting over at This, That and Life today sharing some stuff I’m lovin’. You guys would love Anneke’s blog! Head that way for my favorite thrifty Pottery Barn alternative for the kitchen, home and fashion trends I’m digging, and a photo of a glossy newborn elephant. YES.


You may be familiar with the Ryan Gosling “hey girl” memes that swept pinterest and set unreasonable standards of boyfriend- and husband-perfection for our real-life men.

In honor of Valentines day, let’s celebrate our real-life men! (And other loves. If you’re single, don’t tune me out yet!)

Let’s be honest. Your husband/boyfriend/significant other’s greatest Valentines day wish is to have the ryan gosling hey-girl treatment done to one of his photos. I don’t care what he says. It’s what he’s always dreamed of.

No matter how adamantly he denies it.

That’s why next Thursday, February 7, I’ll be hosting a “Hey Girl” link party right here. Here’s how it’ll work. You find your sultriest photos of your man and hey-girl-ify him. You can use something he’s actually said in real life, or just something you dream of hearing him say someday.

Bloggers: Share your hey-girl-ified photos on your blog for some Valentines day fun and silliness and invite your readers to come back here to link up too!

Non-bloggers: You are so, SO invited to this party! Create your hey girl photos, then upload them to pinterest, flickr or anywhere on the web, and come back here to add them to the party. (Here’s how to upload a pin. Once you upload it, copy the URL and paste it into the link party code which you’ll find here on February 7. If you need help, send me a note!)

All the single ladies (and guys!): This party is for you too! Just hey-girl-ify your favorite celeb, your dog, a piece of chocolate cake, or whatever you love.

Co-hosts: I’ll be cohosting this party with some of my favorite hilarious home bloggers. You can add your link to any of our pages on February 7th and it’ll be hosted across all five of our sites.

You’re on deadline. The link party opens Feb 7 and closes Feb 13!

One important piece of advice: Don’t believe anything he says. He totally wants you to do this.

As you can imagine, Andy is SO thrilled about this idea. He’s so excited that the only way to express his excitement is with an outward appearance of reluctance. I love being able to check his greatest dream off his list for Valentines day. Will you join me here next week? 🙂

P.S.: Don’t forget to swing by This, That and Life and say hi to Anneke for me!

  2. Oh yay! How fun! I know what the hey girl phrase will be. I don’t know if I should actually use a nice photo of him (one of my favorites) or poke more fun with his horrible hairdo pictures. Poor guy, I always use those. Maybe I should make two, to show that he cleans up well 😉
