Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing (source)
Happy Friday, everyone! I'm heading up to the Catskills tonight to spend the weekend with friends in a country house (sadly no Dirty Dancing will take place). We'll be firing up the grill, lazing by the pool and visiting a pet cemetery (don't ask about that one-- but I'll be sure to take spooky pictures for your consumption). Hope you enjoy sunny times this weekend.
