Let's be honest...

When we purchased our light cream sectional sofa we weren't really thinking about the reality of what a dog would do to it. HAH! The color of our sofa and Morgan's paws are not a good mix. We've kept it covered with sheets because as of 2 weeks ago, Morgan can finally jump up on his own [we we're dreading that day].

This past week I posted our couch [which is only 6 months old] on Craigslist. I'm hoping for a sale so we can move forward and purchase a new, much darker sofa.

Here's a reminder of our current sofa [which we love]:

Here's the potential new sofa [we need to test it out for comfort]:

Our Valentine's Day Tradition...

For the last 7 years Mike and I have gone to The Crab Cooker in Newport Beach for Valentine's Day. The food is awesome and the atmosphere is casual [so us!].

Mike usually orders the Alaskan King Crab legs and I go for shrimp on a skewer... they also have the most delicious cheesy mashed potatoes! YUMMY!

The Crab Cooker used to be a Bank of America. The refrigerator is the old bank vault. Pretty nifty!

We thought taking a cruise down Pacific Coast Highway would be fun... that was a bad idea. It took us almost 2 hours to get there [it should have taken us 20 minutes]. PCH was slammed with traffic... at least the view was nice :)
