Item #40: It's not much ... but I played for 1,000 grains of rice today.

We've been busy, playing with the 29-Day Giving Challenge, but we'll complete Item #4 on Saturday. And then we'll probably pick another one to tackle!

Item #4: We're sticking to our plan to dine out with each other once every 2 weeks! And we've already got reservations for 2 weeks from today, which will complete this task!

Item #30: Earlier today, we were trying to decide which one of the following is our favorite: Cosi, Boudin SF, Go Roma, or LaBriola. We like each one of them for different reasons! Then, well, we went out to dinner ... see below ... and it is simply no contest. We've got a new favorite restaurant! We decided it must be our new favorite when we rapidly came up with about a dozen people we want to share it with!! The food was exquisite!

Item #99: Today, we tried TWO new restaurants! For lunch, we were at Cosi ... and for our Valentine's Day dinner, we went to Amber Cafe! Here's the review I gave Amber Cafe on We selected Amber Cafe for our Valentine's Day dinner celebration & were not disappointed in the least. Their 4 course prix-fixe menu was very reasonable and the food was absolutely outstanding. We did not feel rushed in the slightest, and the wait staff attended to our every need. We will return here soon. This restaurant isn't too far from our home (amusingly, it is about 10 blocks from where we used to reside, 6 years ago, shortly before they opened ... why, oh, why haven't we made the trek sooner???!) and for the quality of food, it is very reasonably priced. We dropped a lot on dinner tonight (special occasion, special menu, great wine for H), but we could enjoy a meal here for a lot less most evenings!

Item #18: We just extended a $25 loan through to a Mr. Kwame Acquah! Feel free to help fund other small businesses around the world by checking out this cool process!\

Item #32: We had a nice conversation last night & I've rearranged some funds & paid a large chunk of change to a credit card. If everything goes great, we'll have TWO credit cards paid off by the end of our 1001 days!

Item #81: I swear, we are trying to use up our body lotion, body butter, body cream, soaps, shower gel, and bubble bath ... I just don't know if we can pull it off in 1001 days. Credit card getting paid off ... yes ... using up this mountain of stuff ... I just don't know. Anyone need a bar of soap? LOL. The funny part is that all that remains is stuff that we really like, so we are reluctant to part with it, but I think that if it gets around to December 2010 and intact bars of soap still remain, we know what people are getting as stocking stuffers. *grin*

Item #75: One more visit to the Arboretum & we'll be done with this item! We're having fun seeing the Arboretum in all of its seasons. I think when we are done, I will make a scrapbook showing how everything changes every month!

Item #99: Chalk up one more new local restaurant tried ... Dmitri's Pancake House! Their pancakes were yummy! It was kind of like a diner version of Cheers. And H felt like it was a mafia hangout, where everybody knew everybody else & a lot of middle-aged men were hanging out & greeting one another. Either way, it was nice, it's close to home & we may very well go back.
