Oh dear lord. As I sit here now, I still feel the need to recover a little. Like maybe a month of napping would sort me out. Or a juice cleanse. SOMETHING. I’m pooped. You see, Amanda and I share a birthday and after a couple of years of knowing each other we decided to pack up the girls and make a weekend of it.
Even though our birthday isn’t officially until THIS Thursday, mark it in your calendar. Wink wink.
So our plus blogger contingent descended on a suburban Sunshine Coast home with a spacious pool area and enough beds to sleep two by two. Even though it ended up more like, two, and lots of ones on couches etc. We were set. We over packed, over purchased on food and drink and we were on our way.
It was an epic weekend. The type of weekend that cements friendships like ours because of all the fun times, the laughs, the secrets shared… And well, when you see someone in their togs (or naked) for like 4 days straight, it gets pretty personal. Haha.
But I’m going the let the Instagram hashtag tell the story. No you perves, there’s no nudes there. That’s what SNAP CHAT is for. Jokes. LOL. So enjoy the pics, sorry about all the embedding, I hate that sometimes myself, but it’ll be worth it. Hang in for them to load. OR pop over to the hashtag now on Insta.
First Night, I fell off a giant swan… And bloggers being bloggers, they got it all on camera. Eeeek.
There were more cocktails the next day…
More pictures with the swan Em had affectionately named Bruce (RIP Bruce).
And then more punch.

And then, it was time to take our tired old lady asses home.
When was the last time YOU went away with friends?
Hi! I’m Melissa Walker Horn. Around here, they call me Suger. I’m the Chief Blogger and doer of all the things here at Suger Coat It. Blogging since 1901; I love a casual ootd, taking photos, and writing about things that irk or inspire me. I love wine and cheese, long days at the beach and spending time with my family. I make stuff for the internet over at Chalkboard Digital. You know, living the sweet life.
It looks like a fab time was had by all and honestly, would we expect anything less? Hell no!
As for your question, I’ve never had a girls weekend away, never been on holiday with friends *insert sad face here* which didn’t bother me until this year, as it seems EVERYONE is doing it!
Haha. Hell no indeed! It was loads of fun. And yes, it does appear to be the year of the ladies only getaway, which I LOVE. But I don’t love that you’ve never been on one. You need to make that happen lady. Start out with an over-nighter and go from there. Heck, come here and we’ll organise another one. 😉

Haha. DO IT! There’s always room for one more. 😀
Hi Melissa! My fiance Ben met you today and told me he’d found another blogger in Gympie. I really love learning that Gympie’s got some great homegrown blogging talent. I think you’ve got a great niche and love that you’re so real with your readers.
Look forward to meeting you one day in the flesh. And p.s. have fun in my hometown! I fly back to Melbourne very frequently. It’s my fave Australian city but then again, I could be biased 🙂

Hey Jennifer! It was great to meet Ben yesterday, always fun to find new bloggers and website owners locally. Thanks for the comments on the site, I do love being here. And I cannot WAIT to get my butt back to Melbourne. It’s going to be an awesome weekend.
