Over the last few weeks I have developed a liking for Perry the Platypus. This is completely random (especially since I had never even seen an episode on Phineas and Ferb), but look at how cute he is!

I actually watched 3 episodes this evening, so i now consider myself a Perry-expert. Here is an excerpt from his wiki page:

Perry is the pet platypus for the blended Flynn-Fletcher family, and is perceived as mindless and domesticated. In secret, however, he lives a double life as a member of an all-animal espionage organization referred to as The O.W.C.A. ("Organization Without a Cool Acronym"). Many entrances to this organization are usually found all around the house; such as the side of the house, most notably the tree that the boys sit under and many other everyday objects that seem to elude the family's attention. He engages in daily battles with Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, a mad scientist who desires to take over the Tri-state area with obscure contraptions.

I would like to reiterate two things from above. 1. Organization Without a Cool Acronym and 2. Doofenshmirtz. Here is an image of Perry or Agent P.

So basically, Perry is The Shit. Yes I just typed that, there were no other words to encompass what I needed to say. If you don't like it, I suggest you leave. If you do like it, I recommend you watch this clip:

Sorry, you probably have to click the link. I can't seem to get the embed to work on the iPad, and to do it on the computer would mean getting out of this extra comfy blanket/pillow nest I have built. So yeah.

Black & White

Today while we were waiting for our oil change, we walked over to the mall and played a game of giant chess.

Turns out, I am very, very bad at chess.

Something I Pinned, and Then Actually Did

Maybe this should be a weekly installment. I, like many others, am crazy addicted to Pinterest it has made recipes/cooking in our house an absolute DREAM. I find lots of other useful things there too. Things to make, things to buy, things to make our daily lives more organized and MUCH easier. I 'installed one such thing today, and am very very very happy with the results.

The original inspiration:

My in-home predicament:

New and Improved:

Instead of hooks I decided to go w/ a magnet. I purchased the magnetic knife rack ($14.99) and the metal-handled measuring cups ($3.99 & $2.99) from IKEA. The knife rack actually came with attachments that needed to be screwed into the backing, but I'm never a fan of making permanent changes like that. My new best friends 3M Command Strips did the job just fine :)
