Memorial2011-wkendi love 3 day weekends! i got to spend some quality time with this cute little face. i also tried some of phil's bbq, which wasn't as amazing as i anticipated after waiting in the 45-60 min line – if i am going to wait that long, it better be falling off the bone! jlee also cooked up some of her mom's korean bbq - always makes me happy.
