I love my birthday. The biggest reason being my husband. He spoils me, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't like it. In reality, I love it wayyyy too much. He always takes the day off and makes it completely about me. He makes me breakfast, takes care of Turner, takes me out to eat and gives me the best presents.

This year Matthew scheduled a morning massage for me. My first massage ever, actually. From 11-12 I was given a full body massage and it was so relaxing. I came out of there feeling like a completely new woman. While I was away, he installed a brand new bluetooth stereo system in my car. It automatically syncs with my phone when I get in the car and starts playing my Spotify playlist right where it left off. BIG DEAL, PEOPLE. I can ask Siri something and answer phone calls with the push of a button! I didn't realize how much I would love it. It's the best!!

We went to lunch at Cutler's, a local sandwich/soup/cookie shop that I used to work at when we started dating. The food is delicious and it's family owned by some of the best people I know! If you're ever in the Layton area, you have to try one of their phenomenal cookies. The glazed sugar, semi-sweet chocolate chip and lemon melt-away are my favorites.

My wonderful in laws agreed to watch Turner while we go out to dinner, just the two of us. I am so grateful for the quality time we get together, because it doesn't happen nearly as often as I would like. Matthew is my everything, and I love to focus on strengthening our relationship even more. 

We had dinner at Red Robin (YUM) and they gave me a free Oreo milkshake because it was my birthday. (DOUBLE YUM) Then we walked around the mall and talked about our goals and milestones this year. We'll be having another child in April and celebrating our 5 year anniversary in May! We have a lot of things we want to do before then. I have a feeling my 25th year is going to be the best one yet!

Father's Day Gift Ideas
Father's Day Gift Ideas || A Dash of Salter

I don't know about you, but I love gift guides. That's why I decided to do one of my own, for the first time ever! Father's Day will be here before you know it. Anyone else feel like holidays and birthdays can be like a stealthy assassin? One minute you're living your daily life and the next you're running around trying to find that last minute gift so you don't look like you forgot. The point is, looking online now will give you plenty of time to have it shipped before the day actually arrives. 

Many gifts on this list are classics, and others are unique alternatives. I tried to find as many items on sale as possible, because holiday gifts can add up! Especially if you have multiple father's to give to. (I have 4. My husband, dad, father in law, and grandpa.) Here are some of my favorite items to give and some I'm thinking of gifting this year! I've linked where to find these items in the slideshow below! Hover over the image for some basic information and click it to find out where to buy it! 

What do you think? Will you buy him a classic gift or a unique alternative? What are some of your favorite Father's Day gifts?
