Do the happy dance because Lydia McLaughlin is back for season 12 of the Real Housewives of Orange County. The last time we watched this spunky mama was four years ago in season 8. That was the season when Heather Dubrow and Terry decided to build again and Tamra Judge went on her bachelorette trip. In honor of Lydia's return, we're throwing it back to some of our favorite Lydia moments from her first round as a 'Wife.
1. Every time she did the Lydia dance
2. When her mom channeled her inner Tinkerbell
3. The moments when her mom admitted to being a stoner
4. When Lydia did some damage while shopping and used a ploy to get her mom to spend more
5. When she hesitantly accepted Alexis's dinner invite...and rightfully so
6. When she stood up for women everywhere
7. When she partied it up bachelorette style
