Holy Crap!!! I WON!

How the heck do you win a blogging contest before you've even started your blog? I don't know, but my buddy Jace over at Sawdust and Cowpies had contest...and I won. Go figure... So I figured, if I won this thing, I better get my hiney in here and at least introduce myself and tell y'all to stay tuned.

You see, I've had the idea for this blog in my head for over a year now. It's kinda developed as I've been finishing school, starting a new business, raising three kids and trying to convince all the animals around here that I really am the boss. All but the latter has been working out pretty well. At this time next week I will be taking my last final and finishing my undergraduate degree in business. It's been a LONG time coming and finishing has become the priority of life for the last several months. But more about that later.

So who am I? My name is Susan. I'm a self-proclaimed fabriholic and quilt addict. My husband and I work horse rescue with a group in Texas called Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society. You may have seen our president on Nightline recently. But more about that later. And I am incredibly cheap. I LOVE to save money and help others do the same. Since last February our family has lived on less than half of what we once made. But more about that later.

In short, if you like laughing, sewing, horses, kids and penny pinching, you'll wanna come back and check up on what's happening down here on the Patchwork Ranch. But first, I gotta get done with school so...

More about that later! 8^)
