We are invited to attend the taping of their qualifying episode against Westford Academy. It’s a great way for kids (generally 7+ years), teens and adults to experience the behind-the-scenes of making television and to celebrate the fun of knowledge!

👏🏻Go support Andover High with a big turn out as they defend their championship title!

✔️High School Quiz Show is a Jeopardy­-style televised academic tournament that celebrates the academic achievements of Massachusetts high schoolers, hosted by local media personality Billy Costa and airing on WGBH.

GF Savvy Mama
IMG_6901.PNG

It’s time for another MUMS Spotlight and this one could very well help you in the new year! Introducing GFSavvyMama: a lifestyle website and blog designed to support individuals and families seeking to learn more about living a healthy and happy Gluten Free lifestyle.


Created by Jamie Norris, a local busy MUM of 3 who has been on GF journey for 8 years.  Having one child with Celiac’s Disease, one who is Gluten Intolerant and one who can eat Gluten, Jamie and her husband adopted the GF lifestyle for several reasons: 1) to support their kids and 2) they both felt better after cutting out gluten 3) to alleviated a chronic GI issue for Jamie (along with dairy free) . Jamie’s family is super active, CONSTANTLY on the go, and as she says “a dinner party host’s worst nightmare 😉. However I do my best to feed my crew the freshest and healthiest meals possible!”


Through the years Jamie has accumulated a LOT of knowledge. As more people adopt a GF lifestyle due to Celiac, Gluten Intolerance or general health, friends and family are consistently reaching out with questions:  how do I feed GF guests? what are the best products and ingredients? what are the gluten “safe” restaurants? and how do i “go gluten free”?


“I LOVE finding new products and recipes for my family and friends and helping others on their GF journey. So, in this new year, I have decided to share my passion and knowledge more broadly. If you are living Gluten Free, have GF friends and family that you want to feed well, or are just interested in some really good and healthy recipes, please join me by liking and sharing my Facebook page @GFSavvyMama and subscribe to my blog at www.gfsavvymama.com. I look forward to this journey with so many of you!”

2019 Paint Colors
IMG_6658.PNG

The perfect Winter House Project: PAINT YOUR INTERIOR! If you're stuck inside anyway, you might as well put a fresh coat of paint on your interior walls. Winter months call attention to certain rooms that can be very dark when the sunlight doesn't shine in. Try addressing this problem by putting on a lighter, brighter coat of paint. Even just painting one room in your house could completely revitalize it and make you feel good about doing it too! Check out Benjamin Moore’s Color Trends for 2019 and head over to White Street Paint and Wallpaper in North Andover to grab some today! Of course they have way more than paint for your home!
