Happy "Jana Day" to Me!

Today is January 31st...."Jana Day". (Yes, my name is Jana in case I have never put that on my blogs.) Back in 1992, a few days after Mister Green proposed to me, he was just so in love that he gave me my own day. So I not only get my Birthday, Christmas, Valentine's and Mother's Day, but I get my OWN day as well! I just love my man. You're gonna laugh at what he got me. After watching a VH-1 Classics about Def Leppard and we realized how incredibly musical, artistic and perfectionistic these guys were in making their music I really wanted some old 80's tunes from them to work out to on the treadmill. Though most of the lyrics are HORRIBLE, they were always one of my favorite bands!! For whatever reason, iTunes doesn't have any of their music to download so my man found it online somewhere and had it shipped here this week. Yesterday, on the way to work I had my car stereo cranked up really loudly and I was rockin' out to Def Leppard like I was 17!! LOL!!!!! Toooooo funny to see, I'm sure. I know that I don't want to fill my head or heart with the junky lyrics, but DANG, those boys knew how to ROCK! I love me some good ol' 80's rock. Monday is Rainbow Brite's Gotcha Day, so I'll be back then for some pics of what we do for that celebration.

Have a ROCKIN' weekend! ; )

I am sure you already KNOW how blessed you are to have someone care so much for you and SHOW YOU! He is such a sweet guy and a teriffic one! Believe me, those kinds are really few and far between! No matter what the package says... I consider myself blessed having experienced this type/kind of guy at least once in my life though I am sad it wasn't for the long haul..Love goes along way when your drenched in it constantly! I left something for you over at my place- check it out=) Have a very Happy Day!

I still own my Dep Leppard record albums (along with Duran Duran, and we have a turn-table. I'll admit that when the kids are outside and I'm cleaning the house, the Dep Leppard album gets turned on SUPER LOUD!

Happy Jana Day!!

Happy Jana Day! I never got into the whole "rock" stuff. Didn't enjoy it as a teen and still do not enjoy it as an adult. Glad you are able to enjoy it though.
Also, Happy Birthday Mac, she was 15.

Def Lep fan here! All my DL albums are gone, because they were cassettes. (That makes feel old.) So we learned the songs in order. :) Recently, I got the DL Vault CD so I could listen to the ole tunes again. :)
80's baby...decade of rock n roll & big hair!
