Fit To Be Tied

Last Saturday we were planning to be a part of the Guinness World Book Record!

Now, I LOVE my son. I am ALWAYS looking for fun opportunities to spend time with him and either make a difference or, uhem, set a record!!

My Brands & Bloggers co-conspirator, and colleague, Melisa Wells of The Suburban Scrawl told us about her son's event with The Tie Bar . The attempt to record having 250, or more, people simultaneously tying ties in Wrigley Square, Millennium Park in historic and beautiful Grant Park here in Chicago!


Yep, it was uber sunny and about 95 degrees, but so many wonderful people teaching one another how to properly tie a bow tie was fun and HILARIOUS. Thankfully there were enough old-timers on hand to both coach and give a laugh, SO thanks Melisa and son ... my son and I ... and two of his friends had a blast. We all learned to tie bow ties and hopefully set a record!!!

                        who wears a wool hat in August? My son, but at least he is now a GREAT BOW TIE-er!
