I really hope everybody had a great Valentine’s weekend, whether your in a relationship or single, Valentine’s day is about spending your time with people that you love.  Did anybody go and see Fifty Shades of Grey?  If so, comment below and let me know what you think, still trying to decide if I want to see it!!

I had a great weekend, my boyfriend was away with work for two weeks and came home on Saturday 🙂 We had a very lazy day (he did come home at 5am) so nice catching up though!  I got a lovely surprise flower delivery when I got home from work on Friday, I really wasn’t expecting it!! The flowers are from http://www.madflowers.com and they still look great a few days later 🙂

Roses from Madflowers!

We had a very romantic breakfast 😛 Love my glass cups, and ignore the rest of the junk on the table, even the Christmas tree ha ha.

Full Irish so good :)

On Sunday my boyfriend had organised a surprise as my present, and did a very good job of keeping it secret until about 4.30pm when I was like I need to know!! What am I going to wear??  My surprise was Afternoon Tea in the Shelbourne hotel 😀 😀 http://www.shelbournedining.ie I have been talking about it for months (years) and it was as good as I was expecting! Here are a few pics, including what I wore:

The afternoon tea was amazing!! The staff were really friendly and totally catered for my almond allergy, they questioned how severe it was and kept my boyfriends deserts separate from mine. ( My allergy is not severe so they were able to serve my boyfriend almond based cakes).  So in case you are wondering, we had chocolate and praline gateau, white chocolate and strawberry lemon fool, a chocolate mousse cake, and a chocolate and orange macaroon.  They made me a raspberry panna cotta to replace the macaroon which was amazing!  The atmosphere was really relaxing and not rushed at all.  I was actually surprised that they do a 6pm sitting but it was a perfect time for us.

Definitely have to do a lot of running this week after that weekend!!  What did everybody get up to for their weekend?
