Party of 5

If you follow me on instagram or twitter you know that the Foley family is up to 5.

This little booger came home with my two weeks ago

It all happened kinda quick... Hubby mentioned getting a cat and a week later we had CupCake

Now just to let you know we are NOT cat people
Hubby and I are both allergic so was this the best idea in the world.. Nope not at all
Am I happy we got a cat?
You bet your ass I am!

Now the funny story of how this little boy became part of our family

Like everything else, I put it on facebook that we were thinking of getting a kitten
I immediatly get a message from Hubby's friend saying his moms cat had kittens and she was trying to get rid of them... free kitten?? I'LL TAKE IT!
Over the next week I bugged him to death till finally I got his moms address and was heading to her house to see the furry babies.
She brought out this little blue eyed fur ball and it was love at first sight.
She assured me that it was a girl (Hubby only wants girl animals) because she hadn't seen any "testicles"... She said the word "testicles" probably 5 times while I was there and it took everything I had to not die laughing.
They gave me a box to stick her in for the ride home and we were off

 The ride ended with scratches on my arms and face but we made it!
When we got home the dogs couldnt contain their excitement.
Zoey wanted to eat her and Roxy wanted to mommy her

I felt bad for the poor kitty. I kept telling her she will be bigger then Zoey in no time and be able to defend herself.

Now with our other babies I had names picked out before we even got them. The cat however did not have a name, I decided though since he is white like frosting his name will be CupCake.

However we have started calling him CC since the Saturday after we got him we did some googling and figured out he did in fact have testicles...
The girl from the vet actually laughed on the phone when I told her his name was Cupcake but he indeed is a boy.. "That's why I ask instead of just assuming what sex animals are"

So yep we are now a family of 5 and I couldn't be happier.
Life with a kitten is a lot different then life with a puppy but it honestly is a lot easier which I'm thankful for! 

Welcome to the family little dude! We're excited that your ours

I did a 5K

So don't ask me how but I somehow have managed to sign myself up for two 5k's,
 within three weeks of each other.
Am I crazy?
YES, yes I am.

If you know me at all you know that my main source of exercise is walking to my car.
So the fact that I thought I'd be able to complete two 5k's is beyond me.

Well the first one was last weekend and I DID IT!

It was the Pure Religion 5k and it was for a great cause.
And I was lucky enough to complete this challenge with these amazing women

The day started at 6am, which I'll admit was WAY to early for me on a Saturday
But it was a beautiful day so it was totally worth it

Now I will admit, when we got to the church it was FREEZING!
I tried to be thankful that it wasn't hot because that would've been worse and at least I was smart enough to put on pants instead of the shorts I had planned on wearing.

At 9am the race began and we walked our little hearts out!
We even ran for some of it and managed to finish in under an hour which I was proud of.
Especially since the last leg of the race was straight up a hill!
If you live in Charlotte, you know how brutal Randolph road is and you'd understand

Needless to say I'm still proud of the fact that I did this! 
I even made Hubby take pictures when I got home

Fatty pants Zoey wanted to get in the picture too

Check out that messy after run walk hair! I looked like I'd actually worked out

Super proud of myself!

And of course because my body isnt used to that much movement..
My knee felt like it was going to fall off which meant laying around icing it
(Roxy was tired from running around all day too)

Now the scary part is I'm doing my second 5K in two weeks
Some ladies at my work are all doing the LoziLu mud run
I'm scared but excited at the same time
Fingers crossed that I make it through.
Hubby thinks I'll start crying on the first obstacle so we'll see

Speaking of the LoziLu, I'm off to make myself a tutu... Yup a tutu!
