Hey Girl,

Last night Mr. John and I were curled up on the couch getting caught up on our DVR shows while simultaneously checking email and playing games.  yeah, we’re romantic like that.  I start snort laughing and Mr. John looks up from his Bejeweled game with a curious look.
    “What are you laughing at?”
    “Have you heard of Ryan Gosling’s “hey girl” meme?”
    “…Ryan Gosling’s what now?”

So I show him several of these hilarious things that are floating around the interwebs including this one created by the snort-inducing Kristan of Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.

Confessions of a Cookbook Queen has several “hey girl”s that are HILARIOUS!  Especially for food bloggers

Mr. John stared at the picture with a confused look on his face, but he soldiered on having a true desire to understand.  After several minutes, hundreds of “hey girl”s later, and a deep jealousy of Ryan quickly developing, a lightbulb finally went on over his head:

    “You should do a “Hey girl” cookie.”

We’ve been married almost 14 years now, but in that moment I truly knew how much Mr. John loved me.  I ran into the kitchen to grab a leftover iced cookie to paint on, only to find it had been eaten.  All the cookies in the jar were unfrosted so I quickly frosted one and went to bed, disappointed that I had to wait until morning to paint the “hey girl” cookie and let the royal icing set.

This morning I woke up, got the kids showered, dressed and fed and shooed them off to school.  I quickly painted my little “hey girl” tribute cookie and as soon as I finished I found out I wasn’t the only one who had a “Hey girl” project going.  That darling Mr. John sent me these to my email!

I think it’s safe to say that he gets it now!  There were a couple others… but I think I’ll just keep those to myself!  Mr. John, I absolutely adore you.  I love how you inspire me and are not afraid to send me pictures of Ryan Gosling.  You are the best!

Hey girl,
I hope you have a fantastic day.
