    “It’s a very good place to start” — hahahhaha. Love you.

    I’m about to catch up on your blog, bloggy love. I can only dream that one day I will get to meet you somewhere and hug and share food.

  2. Lisa @ bakebikeblog

    oooh looks divine thus far!!!

  3. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    blogfriends are soulfriends. yes, i completely agree! i can’t believe u and Girl on Raw are friends. i totally read her blog! i forgot you are from the same country!

    Yay for you. Sounds like you my dearest bestie have had the best weekend EVA!!! Its fantastic and lovely and you look relaxed darlin girl. Which pleases me greatly. 🙂 I’m amazed your drinking that margarita though…. Please tell me that this O’Clock involved at least one random and very well thought out pickup line? Cant wait to hear more about your trip. Hugs to you my soulfriend! Xxx

  5. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I’m so glad you were able to have this weekend away 🙂 It sounds like your friendship transferred beautifully from online to real world, and I agree that Manus is very cute (presuming Manus is featured in that first photo!).

    Thanks for the Wagamama review too…there is one 15 minutes (walking!) from my house, but I’ve never been. That’s a tad embarrassing actually. I might have to rectify it.

    I like your style girl!! 🙂

    …….and i love knowing that i will NEVER get another babysitting job ever again, thanks to this comment.

      If this comment was slathered in mayo I would down it pronto.

      I’m pretty sure it’s one of the silliest and bestest things I’ve ever seen chuggalugging across the vast, ofttimes lonely, information superhighway.

      1. Lizzi

        Aw, thanks Emma. Need a babysitter?! 😉

        1. Emma

          Eeep!! If only!

  8. Kate at FudgyGoodness

    Yay for wonderful friends (old or new)! 🙂

  9. msihua

    I agree.. but we are Angle Babe friends.. full of happy rake sways 😛

  10. Lexi

    This is so sweet! I’ve actually only met a couple of blog peeps by accident, but have never met any of my close bloggin’ friends. Your post has made me want to! x

    Ooh, margarita o’clock is a good time. Far more sophisticated than beer o’clock.

  12. hungryandfrozen

    It *is* a very good place to start! I entirely share your view on real-life meetups, and having done it myself (including the traveling-to-stay-with-a-stranger thing) I totally recommend it.

    Manus is adorable! And your Wagamama meal has reminded me that (hoorah!) I have edamame in the freezer and shall eat them tonight!

  13. Libby

    So it’s 11 degrees and raining in Melbourne and then I read about how it’s nice and sunny up in Queensland. Yeah, thanks!

    Good thing I’m flying up next weekend – hopefully it’s still as beautiful and sunny when I land on the ‘Coast on Saturday morning 😀

    I haven’t been to Wagamama but there are a couple of Wagamama restaurants in Melbourne – should give it a go sometime!

  14. Errign

    What a great post. I don’t think I’ve seen Robyn’s baby boy before, which means it’s been far too long since I’ve been over to her site. I totally agree Hannah, drinking o’clock can be the best o’clock around!

  15. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh so glad to hear that you arrived in Brisbane safe and sound! And it looks like you’re having a wonderful time indeed! 😀

  16. Emma

    It’s terrific you were able to enjoy your 48 hours, without letting worry or whatnot creep in too deeply (I hope). I haven’t made any pickles yet this year but now I’m a little worried that if I do they will OwnMySoul and there will be no turning back.

    I can’t say there’s anyone I’ve never met who I enjoy calling. I have a hard enough time phoning good friends… I thought my secretary job had gotten rid of my phone jitters; guess that’s why I always hid in the back room when working that job. Insight!

  17. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Awesome! I hope you kissed that cute baby for all of us who are looking at that picture and wishing we could.

  18. Tammy

    Anything with the words “Wagamama’s zingy-spicy garlic and chilli-tossed” before it is welcome on my menu!

  19. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Oh myyy, I wish I could get my grubby farmers’ hands on that edamame dish! And WAGAMAMA is such a fun word to say.

    You look so devious holding that margarita! I adore the coat!

  20. Terra

    I completely agree with you, blog friends become friends near and dear to our heart! I hope you have a lovely trip, enjoy lots of good food;-) Hugs, Terra

  21. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Oh my gosh, all that food looks amazing!

  22. Lisa

    I remember a friend introducing people at her wedding. About halfway through the introduction she paused as she had a realisation. Everyone knew each other, but only through screen names. Screen name introductions were made and everyone fell about hugging. It was great.

    Mmmm, Wagamama, I think I have an entertainment voucher to there, must dig that out.

  23. Baking Serendipity

    Love blogfriend meetups 🙂 You look to have had an awesome time!

  24. Sig

    I’ve been surviving on margaritas for the last few days. I haven’t been this happy (and happy meaning buzzed) since I drank a whole bottle of red wine by myself over a weekend in Hong Kong.

    Wait – that was like 2 weeks ago. Where DOES the time fly??

    Robyn looks like a lot of fun and her baby is just precious (and this is not just due to the alcohol-induced pangs I am getting in my own uterus). Blog-friends rule 🙂

  25. Yasmeen @ Wandering Spice

    Hi there! The food looks lovely, but as you said, the meeting up with someone who know and love is the absolute trump card. Glad to see you had such a nice time!

  26. Johanna GGG

    I love meeting bloggers – there is a certain understanding that doesn’t exist in the real world – and they know great places to meet (Beyond Q coming up in a post soon)!

    I now feeling comforted at you looking cold in Melbourne now that I see how you rug up even in Brisvegas!

    Glad you had fun with Robyn and her very cute baby! Plus am interested to see what you had a wagamama – quite different from my (distant) memory of Wagamama in London (I assume it is part of the same chain)

    […] also had a very special visitor come all the way from Canberra. Check out her blog post on her visit last week […]

  28. GirlonRaw

    Ooh loved this post Hannah!!! And thank you for your little visit! It was so great for Manus to meet the lovely lady who gave him such a special gift and we look forward to our next meet up xxxx

  29. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I need not even say it again, but ::sigh::! So envious. I’m so glad you two had such an amazing time! Can’t wait to hear more.

  30. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    I love Wagamama (we have it here in Boston too). In fact, I kid you not, I almost went there for dinner tonight but decided to save it for another day. And I agree with you, I’ve become very good friends with some blog friends – some of whom I already feel so at home with before I even met them in person!

  31. whisperinggums

    So, did you enjoy Wagamama? I don’t recollect ours here having chilli flavoured edamame.

  32. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    I love the fact that you’ve traveled so extensively and have friendships all over! You are more than welcome to stay with me if you’re ever in California again 🙂
