Sassy Questions with Shannon Baker

It is such a great morning here, today's Sassy Questions is with the Fabulous Shannon Baker! So grab some coffee or some tea and join us in getting to know Shannon.

Welcome Shannon so glad you have joined us today.

What is your go to comfort food ?

Without a doubt it is macaroni and cheese. And it has to be with Velveeta. I used to make huge amounts of it for brandings. My kids always said I made the best macaroni and cheese EVER. These days I buy the Velveeta shells and cheese. It makes me happy. Don't judge me.

What is your guilty pleasure television show?

I already feel guilty enough about the mac and cheese and you're hitting me with another shot? You're relentless. I'm notoriously unsentimental. And yet, I have all the Gilmore Girls on DVD. I've been spending a lot time with my dear friend in Denver. She's brilliant but man, does she love trash TV. She had me watching my 600 Pound Life. I am so traumatized. I may never eat gravy again.

When you have a girls night out what does that entail?

I'm totally not a night person so any other time of day out is great. But it must involve booze. I had the best job when I lived in Flagstaff. My boss and I would knock off at 3 or 4 in the afternoon at least once a week, maybe more. We'd have a "strategy" meeting at any number of great bars. It would put us home at the regular time and leave us bright-eyed for the next day. That's my perfect girls' afternoon out.

Do you have a favorite vacation spot and why?

Funny you should ask. We leave tomorrow for the Carribean for a dive trip. We're doing a live-aboard for a week, sailing between St. Kitts and St. Maarten. I love, love, love sun and sand and water. And diving is my favorite thing to do. But I also love the Grand Canyon, hiking, biking, river running. Oh, so many great places and things to do!

If you could have a date with one Celebrity who would it be and why?

This question stumps me. I am so impressed by celebrity that I clam up and can't think or talk. So I don't think I want to hang with anyone famous. I recently met Sophie Littlefield in a social situation. She was so fun and authentic and we launched into a totally non-writing related conversation. I'd been wanting to read her books but hadn't at that point. So I bought one and read it in the next couple of days. It was so amazingly great and I am really happy I hadn't read it before we met or I wouldn't have been able to relate to her on a woman to woman basis. I'd have gushed all over her.  There you go, another guilty fact about me. (You're enjoying this, aren't you?)

Yes..Yes I am enjoying this!!
