    That waffle is awesome! I have a waffle maker but don’t use it nearly as much as I should. There might be a little waffle action coming out of my kitchen this weekend! 🙂
    Favourite teacher – my high school math teacher. The advanced math I had to do was absolutely brutal and she definitely didn’t let us off easy, but she cared SO much about us doing well and was a lot of fun outside of class too!

    Let me just say your breakfast looks so delicious!

    I think having a teacher that makes learning fun makes all the difference! My favorite teacher was 6th grade Mr Costilow.. he had events and trips planned, besides teaching in the classroom, for us that was the extra mile for learning made fun.

    Only in Texas would you find a waffle iron in the shape of the state. That’s hilarious and awesome:) My favorite teacher (or one of them!) was my psychology teacher. He made it so interesting, and always had hands on activities. Even though it was over a decade ago, I still remember many of the things I learned because he made them so interesting. He’s awesome!

    I love being from Texas. You can find that waffle maker at gas stations. Also, if you pass a Bucee’s you should go in!

    I don’t know if one Florida shaped waffle would be big enough for most for breakfast! But you guys do have the Mickey Mouse shaped ones – at least when you’re in Orlando!

    Waffles Texas Style!
    My favorite teacher happen to be my Texas History Teacher in middle school! She was tons of fun, had a sense of humor, and would break out into song in the middle of class!

    My favorite teacher was in 4th Grade. She was younger, dressed hip, and was fun! I learned so much that year and even enjoyed math! I remember being so sad when I moved on to 5th grade.

    I usually am not a fan of road trips (I’d take a plane any day) but it looks like you are having a blast. Enjoy!

    I love what you are doing and can’t get enough of your updates. Also can never have enough oatmeal and for sure not enough Texas shaped waffles!

    I don’t know if I can pick one favorite teacher – I had a lot of great ones over the years, but I’d probably say my 3rd grade teacher. I can’t really pin it to one reason, but my mom still remembers her telling my parents during a conference that they should never settle for less than A’s from me 😉 I liked that she cared about my future, I guess!

    Love this road trip concept and I am so glad you have chosen to spotlight education on your trip. I never saw oatmeal at a continental breakfast look so good!

    That waffle looks delicious! I’ve been craving breakfast food since last night, and I’ve also yet to go to a hotel that had Instant oatmeal as a breakfast option. Definitely a score!

    Your trip is really cracking me up because I am from New Orleans and I use to travel to Beaumont every week and stay at that very Fairfield Inn so I am very aware of how limited the workout room is and how very limited your options for dinner were. I live in Austin now and can’t wait for SXSW…maybe I will see you around. Enjoy your time here.

    I actually send my junior college English teacher in Iceland an e-mail few days ago to thank her for preparing me for the real world!

    She was always strict and intense,but somehow always stayed caring and mom-like.

    I thank her for my English and good English accent. Her voice even still echoes in my head with important grammatical rules in English lol 🙂
