Weekending: Revitalization

Good morning, friends!  I have felt really somber all weekend with the events in Paris Friday night.  What a terrible, terrible tragedy and my thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the events.  This quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. is one of my all time favorites and so appropriate for this time. 

Thursday, I met up with some great local bloggers for an event with Megan George of The Zen Succulent at Ramble Supply Co.  It was a great time!  Check back Thursday for the full recap!

Friday night was the night we went out with our friends we met on our honeymoon.  They are the sweetest and DG and I were so happy to see them!

Saturday, DG and I headed east to visit Mom & Dad for my mom's birthday.  I did let my regularly scheduled post go through for her.  Check it out here.

After spending time with our two boys and their boxer puppy, we headed in to Halifax, NC to try out The Hen & The Hog.  I posted a little bit of the history of it on Friday, but I am so excited to tell you about it.  The restaurant is absolutely stunning on the inside and the food is amazing.  I mean, a true gem, and I couldn't be happier that it's located in my old stomping grounds of eastern North Carolina!

The Hen and the Hog is a farm to table concept and is in the old hardware store building.  It's what home decor dreams are made of when you look at the mixmatched antique chairs and the Edison chandeliers.

I cannot rave about the atmosphere enough.  And, I mentioned the significance of Halifax to the American Revolution in my post Friday.  The stairs are a tribute to the 13 original colonies and I absolutely swooned over that.  The food is out of this world good.  By my Raleigh foodie standards, it is incredible.  Their fried green tomato appetizer is divine.  The shrimp and grits, fettuccine, and pork chop were huge hits at our table.  We also got desserts to share.  DG had pecan prailine cheesecake and I had sweet potato and white chocolate ice cream with a beignet.  Those of you in Raleigh must make a trip there for dinner.  You won't regret it.

And, just for kicks, look at this chandelier over the bar.

Sunday was spent getting ready to start the week.  I cannot believe Thanksgiving is in two weeks.  Where the heck does the time go, y'all?  Which reminds me: Don't forget to enter the Erin Condren Life Planner with Lisa, Katie, Owen, and myself!  Today's the last day to enter to win!
