Cup of Coffee with Callie of The Good Life

 Cup of Coffee is a series that I just now named to introduce you to other bloggers with a series of fun questions. Hope you enjoy and tomorrow is the last day to enter my Brittany Chavers necklace giveaway! Take it away Callie, who I like to call my southern sunshine, because she is always so warm, happy and full of that southern charm :-)


Hey Yall!!!!

I am Callie from The Good Life , and I can't tell you how excited I am to be over here at Henning Love. O my, is Meg not the best?? She is just the sweetest, cutest little baking queen I've ever seen. I tell her all the time, that if we ever met in real life, we would DEF be best friends!

Well, this is my first time to ever do a guest blog and Meg and I decided to do a little interview type of blog swap, so that yall could learn a little about us! So we are each answering the same 10 questions. Be sure to check out Meg's answers over at my blog. Hope yall enjoy :)

1) What is one thing that gets you really excited or the most happy?
What makes me most happy is my husband, Kendol and just hanging out with him everyday! We have a blast and he's the bestest!


2) What is one dish or meal you want to learn how to make really really well?
Chicken N' Dumplins!!! I'm pretty good at it now, but I must master the dumplin' part!! I have yet to get the hang of the "kneading" of the dough part.

3) What sports if any did you play in high school?
I was a cheerleader 7th-12th grade and I played Softball and High Jumped until 9th grade. I also took tap and jazz outside of school!!!

4) If you could trade places with anyone for one day, who would it be and why?
OOOOOO... tought one, but the first person that came to mind is Khloe Kardashian..So apparently that's who it is! Random, right?? Not exactly bc I am a little obsessed with the whole Kardashian Klan and she just so happens to be my favorite. Plus she is tall, like me and loves hats!! (I must meet her... she is fab)

Why Khloe, you ask? Well if I was Khloe, I would get to learn what it feels like to just be as open and honest as possible. She is an open book and I love that about her. What you see is what you get. Sometimes I need to be a little more like that. Plus she is hilarious!! And just a few bonuses: I would get to live in a huge beatiful house, sit front row at a Lakers game, get to wear and shop for fabulous designer clothes that I can only dream of, get to see first hand, just how hard those Kardashian girls work and hustle! It's cray cray! Plus I would get to meet the rest of the crazy fam that I love! Maybe do a photoshoot... I mean who doesn't dream of being fabulous enough to do a photo shoot. She just lives a completely opposite life from mine down here in small town MS, so I think it would be neat to experience their crazy life and go to Cali!! I've never been there and have always dreamed of it! And I would get to meet Lam Lam.. Is he not the sweetest??

5) What is a big pet peeve of yours?
I CANNOT stand when people's pants are too short... like when men get their slacks tailored and they don't even touch their shoes... O MY GOSH.... makes me want to scream ha! Why would you ever waste a good pair of pants like that?

And I also have a major issue with repetitive noises.. MAJOR issue.. doesn't matter what it is... clock ticking, alarm, jam band music that plays the same thing over and over and over. I couldn't even watch 24, bc of those stupid beeping noises at every commercial break.

6) If I came to visit, what’s the one thing you would make sure we did and the one restaurant we MUST go to?
I would take you to the Mississippi Delta and show you around!! The crops, the blues, the food, the shopping (MS Gift Company and McCarty Pottery would be musts), ride a few backroads... It would be awesome! Then I would take you to eat at Lusco's. My absolute favorite restaurant from my hometown.



7) What is your favorite sport to watch and what teams (college and professional) do you follow?
My favorite sport to watch is football, but I love basketball and baseball as well! I am an avid Mississippi State University and New Orleans Saints follower!!

HAIL STATE

GEAUX SAINTS!!

8) How did you and your husband meet?
Funny story. My first cousin, Kaylis, was a Tri Delta with me at MS State, but left after our sophomore year to go to nursing school. She came back for our very last date party our senior year. Her boyfriend at the time played baseball, so he couldn't attend. She asked one of her best friends from Highschool to go with her. So after the date party, we had "late night" at our house and by the end of the night it was just Kendol (her date) and I sitting on the front porch. We talked until the sun came up... then we proceeded to go to Hardees for breakfast... He did not tell me we were going IN Hardee's... I was barefoot... He made me go in Hardee's barefoot and in my pj's.... He called me two days later and we have been together ever since!! I still can't figure out what he saw in me, bc I had on XXL t-shirt and a pair of VS sweat pants.

9) Have you ever met anyone famous? If so, who’s your favorite that you’ve met, and who is the one person you would die to meet?
I have met 3 famous people. Jerry Rice, Tracy Byrd and Fred Smoot.

I would have to say my favorite is Jerry Rice, duh!! He is only one of the best football players of all times. And he went to MS Valley State University which is practically in my home town. His parents live in Starkville, MS (where MS State is located), so he comes back to visit pretty often. When we met him, he was just at a bar called "The Abbey" hanging out. Super nice!! I'm sure he thought we were cray-zay!!


Think I was a little excited??
 And the one person I would die to meet??? I have a few (I can't pick just one..impossible)... Justin Timberlake, first and foremost (swooooon). Make fun of me all you want to about JT, but I don't care!! I've loved him since Mickey Mouse Club and always will. Yes, I have been to many, many N'SYNC concerts and 2 Justin concerts (during and post college).. P.S. I have lots of old N' SYNC concerts on VHS if anyone else knows all the moves and ever wants to have a dance party... I'm down.. Just sayin.

I mean... what's not to love?



I would also love to meet "King" George Strait. No explanation needed.

And I would love to hang out with Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. I believe we would be best friends... for real.

O yes... I was just supposed to name one.. whoopsy!! I guess I will stop :)

10) What is your favorite movie of all times?
8 Seconds... hands down!! I could watch it over and over and over and over... Dirty Dancing is a very very close second.





Welp... that's it for now!!
Thanks so much for having me Sweet Meg!
