    My favorite part is how you are a beast with that remote control! Helped us to really SEE what we were looking at!

    Thanks for the 1/2 Windsor tutorial! I usually do another kind of knot but this one looks so CLASSY! Cheers!

    Thanks! Did this right along with you – probably the first time I've tied a tie properly. Like the pop of bright green against your vest too.

    I did not know it was this simple, or maybe you made it look simple :). I love it. This will be my first time participating in the challenge, I cannot wait.

    This is the first "How To" video of yours that I watched (my work computer blocks YouTube, but I'm on my lappie all week – Dr. G is on vacay!) – could you be any cuter?! LOVE the tie, btw! And thanks for the lesson!

    On our honeymoon the hubs and I were heading out for a dress up night (we were on a cruise) and realized neither of us knew how to tie a tie. This would have been mucho helpful!

    Thanks for this! I was just going to ask my Dad how to tie something, but this will work much better! Still don't know what I'll do for the challenge yet, but I'm sure I'll come up with something
