The BWF ‘Hey Girl’ Contest

by January Harshe on February 14, 2012

You may have noticed Ryan Gosling showing up in your Google Reader or Facebook news feed, along with a caption that starts with, “Hey Girl…”.

They have recently caught on in the natural birth community and some even got me to chuckle and shake my head.

I am a huge Ryan Gosling fan. He won me over in The Notebook. I avoided re-posting these pictures, until I saw this one, and about died from hysteria…

Ya, that is pure awesomeness. And funny.

So, after posting one or two, I asked BWF moms to make their own ‘Hey Girl’ pictures with Ryan Gosling or anyone else they want to hear such a wonderful phrase from. I only asked that they were made by them and geared it to BWF.

To kick the fun up a notch, I am making a contest out of it. Vote for your favorite and the winner not only gets bragging rights, but also a FREE necklace from Wild Mother Arts on me.*
