Princess Daisy

I've had a few nicknames in my days; Katie-Bug is what my dad calls me. I was called Barbie in the fifth and sixth grades- not because I looked like her but because my mom had me dressed in fully accessorized matching outfits. Always. I've probably been called bitch a few times, haha! But the nick name that always stuck is Daisy. My mom has called me this since I can remember.

This is the story of how it came to be.

One of my favorite movies when I was little and still is today is The Princess Bride. I think I've even talked about it on this little ol' blog before.

Anywho. When I was about three years old and clearly a DIVA, I told my mom that I wanted to be a princess just like Princess Buttercup in the movie. Wanting to please get me to shut the hell up, she thought it would be cute to call me Princess Buttercup. Because I was smarter than my whole 3 years, this didn't sit well with me. "THERE CAN'T BE TWO PRINCESS BUTTERCUPS!" I wailed. Quickly without missing a beat, (from what I've been told) my mom said, "Well then you can be Princess Daisy!" Eventually Princess was dropped and I was just called Daisy.

My mom is the only person who actually calls me this, but it's special. I can count on every phone call I make to her to be answered with "My beautiful Daisy?" Every card or box sent will have 'Daisy' written on it. And often gifts will be daisy themed.

Daisies are apart of the sunflower family and are a small low-growing European plant, Bellis perennis, having a rosette of leaves and flower heads of yellow central disc and pinkish-white outer ray.

I like daisies because they are simple and sweet and happy. Not to mention pretty darn cute!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

  1. Loved this! I too am in love with that movie but I was all about being princess buttercup, except I didn't think princess was a high enough distinction so... I was Empress Buttercup!
