Pay It Forward

i'm a lucky girl. actually, i'm not lucky, i'm just spoiled. :) last week i received a cute package from jen, jab sent me flowers and this week, coming back from a long weekend, i had yet another package waiting for me to open.

in my office mailbox i had a cute little package from elizabeth, someone who i've admired from afar. i came across her page thru the Shutter Sisters and basically i have a blog crush on her. we mainly converse thru my photography blog but since i don't get much traffic there i thought i'd post about the gift and pay it forward fun here. she sent me some yummy, chewy (my orthodontist is so going to hate me, haha!!) caramel squares with pecans that i have since devoured 2 and it's only 10:30! Thank you, thank you, thank you Elizabeth!


here's how it works:
I agree to send something fun, cute, and nice to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and so on. Unfortunately, due to postage costs, I can only pay it forward within the United States. If you are interested in participating, be one of the first 3 blog owners to leave a comment!

You have to promise that you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, and then send something to the first three people who comment on your blog so that this continues. When the first three have commented I will email you a request for your shipping address and I will send out something that I hope will make you smile!

how fun is that!? i do have to put one stipulation tho. the bulk of my readers are my actual, real life friends (i heart you all!) and being as how you'll more than likely receive a little something from me during the holidays or when it tickles my fancy, you guys don't qualify. anyone in my pham-ily, the broads, jew-crew or all around entourage are out. everyone else is fair game.



  1. I'm the first to comment? Do I count then? :) This is a cute idea, there's something about sending through the post that's magical and much more personal than through e-mails and such.

    Everyone that's ever had braces have to bend the rules at least once for something gooey, chewy and oh so worth it. ;)

  2. My dentist would hate me too if I received and ate a package of caramel. Drat!! I love caramel. Do you think I could bribe him w/chocolate chip cookies to look the other way.

  3. Ooooh, I sooo want in on this! I love getting and sending packages - I do it all the time :o)

    It's neat that you can learn so much from someone by reading their blog....what the like, collect, etc.

  4. I'm so glad you got your package! (My apologies to your orthodontist.) I'm also excited to be introduced to your food/craft blog--this is a whole new side of Angry Asian that I did not know about! :)

  5. Those caramel are lovely! I don't think I have had caramel before. I will lurk around your recipes for one.

    Thank you for dropping by and the lovely comment.

  6. Jen, AJ and Jessica -- you are the winners. i have your addy already Jen. i've emailed you AJ and Jessica for your addresses. i've already started on the packages. :)

    Elizabeth -- my ortho appt yesterday went well, it's all good! and even if i had gotten in "trouble" it was well worth it. so glad you like this blog too, it's my main one. :)

    Andie -
    so glad you stopped by too. caramel recipe is actually on this post. good luck with making it!

  7. So glad the caramels were a hit!
