Nicknames

Nicknames are just fun.

For some reason, I tend to nickname most everyone.  

I don’t know why I do this…it just happens.

I nickname Family

I've nicknamed boys
For instance there was Baby Nugget Lover and MGE (Macho Gym Elf) and "Hot-Ryan" who we now call “Hot-Ryan-With-a-Girlfriend”…Jordan-Van-Der-Sleuth-the-2nd…I could go on.
(these all have AMAZING stories behind them)
I nickname Real life friends

I nickname my blog friends:
(It also happens to be Chelsea's birthay tomorrow.....hence, the crown)

I even nickname their boy-toys like Jayme's FIANCE “Bedroom Eyes"….
she’s got a dreamy one right? They will have beautiful babies!

 And we all know Shay's man DDHP

I nickname people I work with, like The Wizard and the Accounting Beast

I've been given nicknames too.....

I swear my head is 85% teeth
SEE, nicknames are just fun

What nicknames do you have?

Haha, I love this. I don't have many "fun" nicknames. There's Slishica (a combo of my last name and first name), Sunshine, Munchkin, Princess Jess, and of course ... J-Sweezy ;)

I'm not proud of this one, but most of my sorority sisters call me Schmeg. Which is short for schmegma. Look it up, but have a throw up bag handy. Thanks friends.

I am a nickname-aholic! For serious! My family is huge on nicknames, if we don't give you one that's not a good sign (jk)!

I nickname boys, girls, friends. When my friends have babies and I find out the names I quickly try to come up with the coolest nickname possible!

I have a ton of nicknames that I love! They all mean something different and I find that special. Pinky is one of them that my friends at work made up...i mean how cute is that?!!?

Happy Friday Smashtastic!!!! xoxo

Erin said...

LOL- I love nicknames too :) My parents always called me "bear" growing up so I tend to add Bear into everyone's names that I know!! I call people by their first initial and shortened last name a lot too... (i.e. Katy Simpson would be K-Simp) lol!

♥Jess said...

I'm a nickname fanatic also! However, nobody really gives me names... unless it's my hubby. He makes crap up every week.

Fun post!

Stephanie and Such said...

All I got is "Steph J" I swear thats what everyone calls me! But I love giving everyone else nicknames!!

Amy G. said...

I love nicknames and I have a habbit of giving people nicknames too! My nicknames aren't to crazy, but since forever my parents have called me Amy Cat (short for Amy Catherine) which has evolved to just Cat or Kitten. My dad also calls me knothead or Cheer butt (from those old school cheer Sophie shorts!).

Bethany said...

I call my hubby "booby". I really don't know where it came from, to be honest. Haha.

Whitney @ Everything Happens For a Reason said...

I wish I had a nickname lol. The only thing that you can get from my name is Whit, and that's not really creative. I nickname things though. When I was in sixth grade, kids called me coleslaw. I didn't even like coleslaw, but it was a play on my name. It was so mean. I cried.

Ashley said...

Sarah said...

Since my last name is Poupard, everyone calls me Poup. That's what people used to call my dad, too. But I guess, come December, that'll change since Poupard won't be my last name anymore!

twiggy@thedirtlife said...

so, i'm called "aimsickle" by my mother-in-law (you know her). i made a remark on my blog about how that sounds like a contractual disease. so, now she calls me "contractual disease".

Ashley Slater said...

Ashley said...

Haha, I love this! I always give people nicknames. Sometimes I don't even realize that I shorten peoples' names after hardly even knowing them! I used to get Smash a whole lot, but my personal favorite is courtesy of the guy friends in my life: Ashhole. It's completely a joke, and all out of love, but when girls hear them refer to me as Ashhole they FREAK out and immediately look at me to see if I get mad. Haha!

Seashells and Southern Belles said...

I am a nicknamer too! I get it from my dad, who nicknames everyone. One of my guy friends from hs who always wore flip flops, even in the winter, is Flip Flop Bobby. and ohhhh baby nugget aka known as SMII. mwuahahah

Alex said...

I always gave my high school crushes animal nicknames. There was the marmoset, the polar bear, and the jack rabbit. I'm sure there were more, but just remembering these is embarrassing enough!
