This post is part of our FBG Birthday Week celebration! Check out all of the special four-year birthday posts and huge giveaways here!
Last year for our birthday, we shared our thoughts and yours on what it means to be a Fit Bottomed Girl. We also gave a top-10 list of signs that you might be an FBG. This year, we thought we’d mix it up with a fun, interactive fill in the blank. So, we hit up our Facebook page and Twitter to ask readers to complete this phrase: “I knew I was an FBG when ____.” The answers? Simply awesome, hilarious and touching.
