Real Housewives of Orange County star Lydia McLaughlin is showing off her bangin' bikini bod  and while next to a plate of cheeseburgers, no less! Take that, Slade Smiley.

There's no doubt that Lydia has an amazing body  especially considering she has two young children  but we sometimes forget just how amazing it is. Now, we have further photographic evidence. 

Lydia attended a poolside BBQ over the weekend, and she posted this smiley photo of herself on Instagram on October 6. Looks like the shindig was a blast!

"Thanks @sophierussell7 for the amazing BBQ today! #GoodFriends #GoodFood #EndlessSummer," Lydia captions the shot. And by the way, does it ever get cold in Southern California? Just curious. 

We love how happy Lydia looks in this pic, not to mention that we're jealous of her adorable floral strapless bikini top. 

It's also clear from this pic that Lydia does in fact eat, as she has a hot dog bun in her hand. Guess this is contrary to a certain someone's belief (*cough* Slade *cough*).  

Indeed, as you may recall, there was a bit of a dust-up at the end of Season 8 when Slade whispered to Gretchen Rossi that Lydia could use a cheeseburger, and Lydia didn't appreciate Slade's comments about women's bodies. 

Keep the cute pics coming, Lydia! And we hope you remembered to save a hot dog for us.
