For Valentines Day Seany booked the most beautiful hotel in Birmingham for us. The little cutie got us a lovely room at the Radisson Blu hotel in the city center. He knew I'd always wanted to stay at 'the big blue hotel' and made sure I did.

We checked in just after 2pm, after an emergency stop at Primark for a black belt as I'd forgot to pack mine oops. We then went straight up to our beautiful room and admired the gorgeous view. The room was perfect. Me and Sean relaxed with a few cups of complimentary tea before taking a shower and getting ready to go for dinner.

We had our Valentines dinner at Handmade Burger in the Bullring and it was delicious. We've never had a bad meal there but this was just amazing! I would 100% recommend eating there!

After dinner we made a little stop at Build a Bear Workshop and made our own teddy bears before heading back to our room.

When we got back I cracked open a couple bottles of wine and we sat looking out over Birmingham. I can't even begin to explain how lovely and relaxing it is just watching the world go by, especially when you can see for miles. 

Just before midnight we settled down to watch Bad Grandpa which is actually hilarious. We must have kept our neighbors awake with our laughing. After the film finished we decided to get some sleep but set our alarms for 7am so we could watch to sun rise over the city.

I wouldn't be valentines night without drinking wine in the candlelight now would it?

At 7 we woke up and waited for the sunrise. I couldn't really get a good photo, but it was lovely. We had a couple more hours sleep before waking up for a yummy full English breakfast and check out.

On Sunday me and Sean went to Cadbury World in Bournville with my family. I'd been before years and years ago and I was really looking forward to taking Sean as he had never been. I love our days out and I just wanted to show you guys a few pictures from our fun day trip!

Welcome to Beanville road sign
Beanville can be found by taking a go on the Cadabra ride

We basically spent the day eating free chocolate, learning where it comes from and being shown how its made. There's loads of fun bits like the Cadabra ride and having your photo taken in front of a green screen.

As you can see me and Sean took full advantage of the the green screen and ended up with the last photo! I'm sure I used to get a lot more free chocolate when I visited back in the early 2000's however, but I can't complain, I'm just sad because I absolutely LOVE Cadburys chocolate!

Of Course we had to have a photo in front of the green screen! Who knew we would be so good at riding chocolate waves?!

Cadbury World is amazing and I would advise anyone, chocolate lover or not, to take a trip. Now I'm quite lucky and Cadbury world is literally a 10 minute drive from my house but it's definitely worth going even if you don't live in the Midlands! It's a great day out for families, and couples alike and they even do deals on tickets if you're lucky! 

Have you ever been to Cadbury World in Birmingham? Did you love it?
