Military Brides

MB Siggy Challenge!!

I think this is such a good idea that it's worthy of its own thread!!! I won't take credit for it (I believe it was FTL's idea!) but Hikey- seriously, we should do this!!

    Do it! If you guys wanna do it, I saw go for it! I probably won't join in because I'm not big into sig challenges but if you guys wanna make one, I think you should!

    What thread did this come up in? I think it'd be fun. I'd probably do my month board challenge with it like a collage and say which ones which haha I like siggy challenges

    Also my month board puts the poll for each month on the website. Just a thought for choosing

    Well, I reckon we should each list an idea and then someone can make a poll out of it, no?

    I think we should do rings; I'm sure it's been done but I love seeing everyone's rings!! My other suggestion would be to do a non-wedding siggy challenge that relates to the military somehow (duh) but IDK what. I suck at ideas like this. haha!

    I like the ring idea. I kinda aw'ed calindis hardcore haha I love some ring porn
  • edited December 2011
    I absolutely would participate... It can be wedding related or not.. But since wedding related ideas are pretty obvious (I do like the ring idea!!!! ) here are some nonwedding ideas as well:

    -furbabies
    -something special about where you're stationed/live (ie I would post a space needle picture or something)
    -Spouse and you during Christmas time
    -Spouse in his uniform (or spouse and you with him in uniform)
    -A picture from him leaving for deployment
    -A homecoming picture
    -A picture of what you want for Christmas
    -The first/oldest picture taken of the two of you
    -The most recent picture taken of the two of you


    Thoughts?? :)

    OMG Love all of these! I'll have to see if I have pics from him leaving and if I do hopefully I don't look like I'm bawling too much haha
  • edited December 2011
    Well we DO have a lot of ladies on here that haven't gone through a deployment yet so we can scratch those.
    We could do a picture from a "significant moment" though.. That would be cool.
    I really like the idea of a holiday pic though.. hmm... we need more people to wake up and give opinions!!

    That's why I said "significant moment" so that everyone can pick a significant moment we don't have to pick a particular one... Not everyone has a homecoming pic, a goodbye, a graduation, a proposal (I happen to have all, so whatevs there.. but a lot of ladies don't). I don't want to accidently exclude ladies.

    Cab I like the holiday one too! Since it's festive :)

    I wouldn't do it because I honestly just don't get siggy challenges.  I truly don't get why it's called a "challenge" because it's not like their is an award for them or anything.  But that's just me.

    I know on MN though they have someone new pick every month.  They usually do general ones, like favorite hobby, sports team, etc.

    I think it's called "siggy challenge" because "siggy that this particular board choose as a collective group to have posted for the month" is too long. :P bahaha
    It's obviously not an actual CHALLENGE.
    If you don't want to do it, just.. don't?
     I like them because it gives me something new to put in my siggy that I don't have to think to put there. And I like to see other's hobbies/holidays/favorite whathaveyou. If there was no "siggy pick of the month" (<-- is that more accurately descriptive?) I would probably forget to switch it up.  I don't always do the Sept. one though.. Like last month I didn't have a "ceremony pic" so I just didn't participate.

    hmm.. I just realized that I sounded a little snarky in that response when I said "just... don't?"
    Sorry if that came off rude! Didn't mean that to be!

    I like the significant moment one, because I am an AW and I believe FI had the best proposal. Haha. 

    Jk..but really

    Why yes I do... FI had been all sneaky and talked with the people before hand and had given the camera away to a rando. We were on a sunset, sailboat, booze cruise (just kidding they had free wine/beer) at St Augustine. 



    Edited because of the giant picture

    aww super sweet :) We got lucky too! It's a long story, but H set it up so that my girlfriend would be there to snap pictures of it all. Smart man :P
  • edited December 2011
    I would play.  I don't have lots of pics because H hates getting his picture taken, but I guess if I didn't have that picture I just wouldn't play that month.Wink

    I like all of these! I think it'd be cool to do every other month NWR or something, ya know? some variety. 

    I wish we had pics from his proposal, but we don't and it was dark anyway. I couldn't see the ring! haha. My sister couldn't see the ring when my BIL proposed to her either! so funny.

    bahaha that's so funny :) So you said yes without even knowing what your bling looked like? That's a good sign ;)
    I love our proposal pics. That was something I told him I wanted... Way back when we first started dated he had asked me what the "perfect proposal" was.. I said.. anything. I don't care. As long as I have pictures of it :P :) I love pictures.. I love capturing memories of things like that so that in our old age we don't have to trust that our memories will hold.. Pictures will for us.

    FTL- That was the one thing I regret about my proposal. I wish I had pics or a video if it. But we were completely alone on a baseball diamond, no one around. So I wrote the story down so I can always remember it that way!

    So what are we going with for this month? Rings/proposal?

  • edited December 2011
    FTL- I know, right? I told him he should know that I definitely love him, because I had no idea what he was putting on my finger. Could have been one of those spider rings from a gumball machine ;)

    I love pics too, but binxy and I did the same thing- writing down all the details so we could remember it. That much is up on my wedding website, that is definitely nowhere near completed! It's a funny story, really. He was trying to make it really romantic and I was so clueless, I definitely wasn't helping.

    I would play! I would love to have a proposal pic, but ours was on a nighttime stroll by the WI river. No one was around and he got down on one knee in 3 feet of snow!
