  1. That sentence does not have a linking verb.

    The verb is looked, but it's an action verb in that sentence. It tells what we did.

    However, look can be a linking verb when it means is or was as in this sentence.

    Nicole looked beautiful in her new dress.

  2. we have eaten supper already
