5things: Best Margarita

I am not much of a drinker but when I do imbibe I’ll drink a beer or better yet, a margarita.  Way back in the day the Rio Grande Cantina was THE place to get a great margarita.  I also used to like the prickly pear margaritas at Ezra’s, but they are no more.

5things: Color My World, and Hair!

I'm just going to say it.  I have great hair.  I've always gotten compliments on my thick, wavy hair.  I've had it long, short, brown, red, blond-ish, straight, 80s permed, layered, feathered, curled, braided, and even pig tailed.  There is one thing, though, that I really, really want to do to that I've never…
