LONG BEACH, Ca. (FOX 26)
We all love showing off our big life events ... our engagements, our weddings, our babies, our graduations.
Well Benita Abraham showed off a different life event: her new employment!
"I was unemployed for 7 months, so I wanted to share the big news with my friends and family in a silly way," Abraham told FOX 26. "Work has always kind of been my baby."
Abraham, who is originally from Houston, posted a hilarious Facebook album in celebration of her new job in Long Beach, California.
She and her friends Liju Mathew, Alyse DeCavallas and Michael DeCavallas took the photos in the hopes of getting around 300 likes.
But, the post went viral with nearly 30,000 shares and more than 17,000 likes!
"My friends and I were just sitting around after I received the offer and someone said 'You should totally do a photoshoot.' So I thought, 'You know what, I WILL do a photoshoot!"
For the album, Abraham posed on the beach with her job offer like it was an engagement shoot.
Another photo shows her wearing curlers while sipping from a coffee mug that reads: “Officially off the job market.” There's some of her with a cake that reads #Employed.
Abraham started her new job this week and couldn't be happier with her new baby.
