by Sarah Title

If you #justsaidyes, it’s likely you’ve had one (or more) of the following things happen recently. Some come with the territory of being a newly-engaged couple, and some are just plain weird.

1. Friends you haven’t spoken to since you graduated college or moved out of your childhood home randomly reach out to you and want to know how things are going, aka they want an invite.

2. You enjoy typing, chopping vegetables, and anything else that involves looking down at your left ring finger for an excessive period of time.

3. Wine glasses, ring dishes, and other random goods show up at your doorstep as engagement gifts.

4. It’s become a goal of yours to work the words “my fiancé(e)” into every single sentence.

5. You become a major penny pincher about things you used to splurge on because, well, this wedding isn’t going to pay for itself.

6. You become obsessive about keeping your nails perfectly polished.

7. You constantly check your left hand to make sure your ring hasn’t fallen off or magically disappeared from your finger.

8. You consider wearing a sign that explains your proposal story in detail so you don’t have to tell it for the 500th time.
