For many of us it was the first week back at school for the little ones! How did drop-off go? Were there tears from your kiddos — or were you the one doing all the crying (or happy dance in the parking lot like us)? As we get back into our school year routines it’s an adjustment for everyone. So much to do and so much to keep track of. Mom brain to the max! Well, we’ve got you covered. This is our “Friyay Roundup” where we share all you need to know as you welcome the weekend with open arms.

We are expecting (hoping the weatherman is right this time) partly cloudy skies with a high of 82 for both Saturday and Sunday. Perfect for all the outdoor activities going on this weekend.

Around town:

There is a corn festival in Norwell, a touch a truck event in Hanover, a waterfront festival at Nantasket Beach, open barnyard in Hingham and a farm day in Duxbury.

Moms, you may want to check out ladies farm fitness, head to the Hingham farmers market or the flea market at the Marshfield fair grounds. It will also be a great weekend to enjoy one of the many playgrounds in our beautiful area. Whatever you decide to do, get outside and enjoy this endless summer while it lasts. Extra points for keeping those kiddos out of the house so all your tidying efforts remain in tact.

For more details on all that is going on in and around the South Shore check out our calendar!

Retail Therapy

If you are anything like us, you will enjoy a little shopping (retail therapy after a long week), so we wanted to share some fun finds and sales going on around town and online:

FOR THE KIDDOS:

*Hannah PJs are buy one get one 50% off this weekend. We swear these last longer than any other PJ out there. Is the fabric magic?

*Nordstrom is having a great shoe sale. We ordered these adorable little girls chucks for school *already sold out!*, so check these glitz and glam sneaks out. If you have a boy these black and blue chucks are pretty darn cool. If your husband (read: tiger soccer dad) is already vying for a soccer scholarship, you may want to look the part at soccer practice this fall and get these bad boys. If your little girl also has a western flair, pick up these stylish boots. How cute are these sneaks (50% off) for those active little guys.

FOR YOU MAMA:

*Our all time fav, club monaco, has some great pieces on sale. Don’t you love this oat colored sweater with the scalloped neck?

*Anyone else feel like they aged a decade this summer? Head over to Sephora if you want to try this Bliss hydrating gel-cream for younger looking skin.

Around the Web

FINALLY if you have a little time to yourself and want to catch up on what’s happening on the world wide web (lock yourself in the bathroom) we’ve got a few articles we enjoyed and thought you would too:

*Are you on the prowl for the ultimate Mom friend? This awesome article had us howling laughing and nodding our heads.

*Are you obsessed with home organization like we are? Check out The Home Edit. Their instagram stories are full of hilarious entertainment. You’ll thank us later.

*Have you heard? Target is launching Hearth & Hand in collaboration with Magnolia and we can’t wait!

*This app solves all your group text problems!

*If your little one is struggling with school drop off, check out these parenting tips so you can say goodbye with no tears next week.

Have a great weekend!
