She shared a video to her Instagram Story on Tuesday, Dec. 29 to let fans know that she is getting settled with her guy in his home in New York City. The 30-year-old Bachelorette previously posted pics to social media on Dec. 24 of the newly engaged pair heading to his hometown to celebrate Christmas.
"I kind of forgot about Instagram for a hot minute, which is so funny," Tayshia explained in the footage on Dec. 29. "But I have just been so excited just to live life, and not going 100 miles an hour, slash living a double life and being in secret. But I have been so distracted by just being in the same house as Zac."
She laughed as she revealed that sharing a residence with him is much different from their lives prior to the Dec. 22 finale. Before viewers saw Zac pop the question to Orange County, Calif.-based Tayshia on the ABC dating series last week, the lovebirds would "FaceTime for hours on end" or chat on the "phone for three, four hours" because they weren't allowed to mingle in person for fear of being spotted.
"So surreal that we can just be out in the open," she marveled.
At that, Zac made a surprise appearance in the footage as he emerged from his home office. And while she hasn't hailed a taxi just yet, she does have a plan in mind to upgrade his decor just a bit.
"We have to kind of get some furniture," Tayshia declared. "We have to spruce up the place. It's definitely a bachelor pad here, wouldn't you agree?"
When Zac proudly replied, "Absolutely," she was quick to inform him, "So we got to change that up real quick."
Overall, life in the Big Apple appears to be treating the couple well. After soliciting recommendations for board games that they should try next, Tayshia concluded, "We're doing good!" She then turned to her fiancé to ask, "Would you say we're doing good?"
His adorable response? "Better than good—great."
