There's Always Money in the Banana Stand...

Today, we ventured out to Balboa Island, which happens to be the setting of one of our favorite TV shows.

This, is Arrested Development:

Sadly, after a thorough search, we discovered the Bluth Banana Stand doesn't actually exist.

"I'll Save You Brother!"


Best. Soft. Serve. Ever.

Yacht Club...

The Balboa Candy Shoppe proved to be a trove of treasures:

Lenin-ade: "Get Hammer and Sickled":

Tacky Candy Cigs (Don't judge...):

P.D.A. on the Pier:

Smokin' Hot Husband:

The Greenery:

Spilled Paint:

Yet another beach town I would love to inhabit.

Cue "Final Countdown"

I LOVE Arrested Development...whenever I need a pick me up, all I need to do is pop in an episode and watch G.O.B. do an magic trick ("ILLUSION, Michael!")with "It's the Final Countdown" playing in the background...awww, such a good show!

Love Balboa Island. Love AD.

They sell that Lenin-aide drink here at my favorite candy store (that I WILL one day open in Park City..mark my words...) and it cracks me up every time.

Oh, Arrested Development. The best show that got cancelled way too early. :(

What a fun time y'all are having! I immensely jealous.

Final Countdown is my ringtone. I'm so glad you tied in Arrested Development into your trip. Now I want to go to Balboa Island. And ride a segway.

When we went to Balboa Island, there was actually a Segway parked outside one of the little shops so of course Matt and his brother had to get a picture next to it. Next week when we go, I don't doubt that they will be renting their own Segways to cruise across the island... such G.O.B. wannabes. But who doesn't want to be just like a man who wears stripper clothes even when he's not stripping???
