Free To Succeed Tour : Dallas

ast night was a first for me. I have one word: WHATABURGER. The tour bus made a stop at the ungodly hour of midnight for dinner. Yes, dinner. The stop was originally just for Brett to get a bite to eat, but because the rest of us have will power comprised of the strength of wet noodles, we discovered the glory that is WHATABURGER. Thank you. Thank you, Austin, for exposing me to Texas toast, mustard on a grilled cheese, and making me workout twice as long this morning to repeat for my caloric transgressions.

We’re in Dallas now, but I’ll be posting pictures from the Austin show last night a little bit later today, so stop on by again! :)

Well, I received two pieces of bummer news today, so I was in a funk. But, like any good American girl, I rallied back with a little retail therapy at Northpark Mall in Dallas. It was a like a home away from home! A special thanks goes to the girls at Intermix for cheering me up and furthering confirming my love for this city!

Grace - Did you know that Whataburger started out in Corpus Christi, TX? I only know that b/c we just moved here to the Corpus area last year. It was so great to meet you in Austin! It was totally worth the 4-hour drive - not that it was ever in question! Thanks for taking the time to do the tour, come to Texas, and share of yourself.  08.04.08 - 8:17am
courtney wilkerson - Whataburger Ketchup is the best. I craved it all during my second pregnancy. My husband made many trips in the middle of the night for a Justaburger and fries! YeeHaw! Glad you enjoyed Texas!  08.02.08 - 1:40pm

Kathi - Welcome to Texas, Jasmine! While I didn't have the opportunity to meet you personally, my husband and his friends did. They attended the Houston show and have been talking about it ever since. You and David Jay sparked something in them that I haven't seen in a while. Thank you!!!  08.01.08 - 10:16pm
Yvonne L - OMG how much do I miss WHATABURGER?! My only saving grace is that in CA we have In'n'Out! The thing I miss most about whataburger is their sweet tea... I used to grab one every day!

Stacy Cross - Oh my goodness. It has taken me almost 27 years of my life to train myself to stay AWAY from Whataburger! It's sooooo good. :) It was wonderful seeing you last night - you're so great, Jasmine!  07.31.08 - 12:05pm
Julia Williams - I was in Texas for a hearing once, and someone told me his office was next to the 'Waterburger' and that we should go there for lunch. My reaction was WTF???? But I agree... it was surprisingly delicious! (especially compared to what I thought a 'water burger' would be!)  07.31.08 - 11:19am
andie - if you want really good hamburgers in Big D go to twisted root in deep ellum area. REALLY good! or the best place ever is Lee Harvey's in the douth side. the owner is also a photographer!  07.31.08 - 11:13am
Scott Helsel - Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to come to Austin and speak. The information you shared about branding was just what I needed. It seems like a daunting task but one that is vital. Thanks! Glad to see that enjoyed one of our regional delicacies...its hard to beat a Whataburger!  07.31.08 - 11:06am
Heather Jorgensen - Hey Jasmine! It was an unbelievable experience last night - meeting and hear you and DJ speak. Thank you so much for coming to Austin! *hugs*  07.31.08 - 10:59am
Kenneth Martin - Whataburger, or as we say in Texas, "Wat-er-burger" is great! But not as great as your presentation in Houston. I am totally inspired! Thanks for taking the time away from home to share with the rest of us.  07.31.08 - 10:51am
Brandi Tejeda - haha! Its so cute that you loved Whataburger! It is the best fast food burger ever! :)  07.31.08 - 10:48am
