Friday last week was our 3 year anniversary. Boy does time go quick!
In true style the boyfriend didn't disappoint, I came back to my desk at 3 pm and found a big bunch of roses with a sweet note and a box of chocolates attached.

On Saturday the boyfriend and I escaped to Lorne for the weekend.  I was told the weather was going to be wet and miserable, I had my fingers crossed it wasn't. Luckily, the weather was amazing.
We picked up coffee and we were ready to go! I also got a haircut on Thursday.. I hate cutting my hair however it really needed a good chop! It feels so much nicer. Gah. Unnecessary evil haha

The weather was perfect.
I love the Great Ocean Road there is so many photogenic moments - the boyfriend hated it ha!
However he grinned and bared it.
I had to take a photo of this sign, it actually says "No sex, head jobs only!" LOL. mature I know.
We stopped a few times to get some snaps, but I wont over load you don't worry.

We drove into Lorne and decided to check into our apartment, unpack before we went driving along the great ocean road some more.
We stayed at the Cumberland Resort Hotel. I was a little worried as I had heard mixed reviews online about the place, however I had nothing to worry about this place was gorgeous! I couldn't fault it.
We stayed in a Ocean View Executive Room. Its on the main road in Lorne and faces the Ocean.

The management left us complimentary Champagne and Chocolates with a message in our room. Which was so nice of them! The top right photo is the view from our balcony. Stunning!
We had some lunch, went for a walk and then we then continued along the great ocean road.

More snaps.
I have discovered ZERO red bull. - So good!

The boyfriend got the the new iPhone5 S before we went so most of the photos are on his phone, because believe it or not the camera on the 5S is ah-amazing. It also a new function called slow mo, so when you take a video and it slows it down, it was hilarious some of the videos we took! Sadly I cant work out how to upload them on here!? 

When we got back we got some ice-cream and went for a walk along the beach.
Hokey Pokey  - Best childhood memories eating this from the tub!

Beach - So pretty!

By the time we got back to the hotel it was after 6pm and we were pretty tired from all the driving, sight seeing and yadda yadda yadda. We grabbed some take away from a place called ChopStix this was probably the best Asian food I had ever eaten, so good in fact that I didn't get any photo.. Suprised?

The boyfriend had to watch the footy, considering it was the game that decided who would go into the grand finals - We had a spa in our room so at half time we pulled up the blind between the bathroom and lounge room where the TV was and wallah the boyfriend was all set.

We had a little bit of a issue, well it was my issue really - The boyfriend suggested I go and start filling up the spa as it would take a little while, we had bubble bath and I'm not really a expert and don't bother reading labels so I put in half a bottle. Lets just say we had to empty the spa more than once to get rid of a room full of bubbles. HA! Next time I wont be in charge of putting the bubble bath in that's for sure!
Once we finally got sorted, Champagne, chocolates, TV and the boyfriend. Perfect

On insta we had alot of recommendations to go to The Bottle of Milk for breakfast the next morning. We went and had a look at the menu, but you know what nothing grabbed our attention! So instead we went next door and I over dosed on Avocado, eggs and bacon with a fresh juice.

I'll leave you with some mixed snaps from our weekend.
