the mcenglands...

have a little secret! Prayers are appreciated more than you'll ever know so if ya feel like sending up some special intentions up to the big guy on our behalf, we'd be much obliged.

Also, dear sweet husband and dear sweet father-in-law tiled the floor in our teeny tiny bathroom this weekend. I can't tell you how gorgeous it looks, you'll just have to see for yourselves. Next time you're in the neighborhood, stop on over and have a sit down in our ladies room (I mean big handsome doctor's lounge, Ben!).

Oh! P.S. Thanks for the prayers for Ben's fellowship! He got it! WOOHOO!

Our pretty new kitchen!

Ben and I became super-productive this weekend.  When I first bought the house about 4 years ago, the kitchen was ghastly. The backsplash and the countertops were vinyl... melted-plastered-and-painted-over-hunter-green vinyl. Friends came over and helped me rip it down and my brother, Jamesy, and his best friend for ever, Steven, came over and put up beadboard paneling on the walls where the ugly melty vinyl had been and then tiled the backsplash and countertops... SO SWEET except they ran out of grout and the sides remained tiled but groutless for almost FOUR YEARS... and the beadboard never got painted. Today, loved ones, I am proud to announce that the kitchen remodel is nearly complete! Have a look! We also painted the walls a pretty light aqua!
