A pie and a beer from Bagby Pizza Company in Harbor East. If you haven’t tasted their thin crust in all of its gooey, crispy perfection, add it to your summer to-do list.

Hope you all have a great long weekend and a warm kick-off to the summer season. It feels like it came so quick—and I know it will be gone just as fast—so let’s all soak it in and enjoy every second of the bbqs, sunshine and fresh fruit. In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite posts this week:

– I thought it was silly at first, but hearing what Maggie and her readers learned from Oprah turned out to be a pretty endearing reminder of some important life lessons. What has Oprah taught you?

This made me laugh out loud (some days I can’t help but agree).

– I want to drink one of these this weekend.

Lisa’s post on the HGTV green home made me drool.
