Just to be clear: a proposal has not taken place yet. I just want to be prepared when it does since it will likely be in the coming months.

What is the etiquette to announcing it, other than calling our parents? For one thing, I think my sister and brother will find out from my mom and also will not be offended if I don't tell them directly. As far as grandparents go, I'm just really not sure. Obviously I feel like I should call, but it seems like the most awkward phone conversation basically ever. Like how does that go down? I'm picturing my grandma saying "oh, well how nice!" and then...that's it.

I also don't live close to my family, so other than our parents and grandparents, everyone else is getting the Facebook announcement.

Any experience to share here? Is this as weird as it seems like it will be?
