We walked. Every Saturday morning Coppell has a farmer's market. It is about a mile and a half from our house. Hubby asked to go! I grabbed my walking shoes and a market bag. I didn't have cash, but most all the vendors now have debit card swipe thingies on their phones. Gotta love technology.
Coppell was never a large town, won't ever be either. We will max out around 40,000. All we have in our "downtown" is a few old buildings on one tiny corner. So what do you do? You build a mini downtown.
These darling homes are being built around a square that will be home to the farmer's market and some retail shops. The whole thing is about a four-five block area.
The home's really will be "darling", front porches and all. I hope they move our fourth of July parade here one day.
There are a few original home hold outs. This little one has been cute yellow since we moved here twenty years ago. The corner below will be open for tours someday.
It was a great morning, oh yeah what did we come home with? TAMALES of course. We are in TEXAS. Fresh made in west Dallas. Had them for dinner last night with fresh homemade guacamole.
NOW, if you made it all the way to the end of this post (lucky you) you get to see a sneak peek of the grand-twins new curtains for their nursery. I made a trip to McKinney yesterday and spend a few hours with Ann Marie and Michael. I forgot Ann Marie only had a hand me down sewing machine. I did bring thread and the fabric. Thank goodness it still had the instruction manual. I gave her the smocked rocking horse dress at their reveal party, if you missed it you can go here.
Next project ~ bumper pads and dust ruffles. We'll have to make enough for two baby beds. Ann Marie is 5 months along. She felt the babes last week! And has felt great the whole time, no morning sickness at all. Just like her Mom 27 years ago. So if the babies come early like she and her sister did we only have three months left! YIKES!
