She had even revealed in an Instagram post last month that her family’s time in Chicago would soon come to an end.  But even then, she noted she was “really gonna miss this place.”  “Not only we’re sic all 3 of my babies born here, it’s where it all began with jay, it brought me closer to my mom who has become my best friend, I’ve made some amazing girlfriends, and I’ve really enjoyed being back here (a lot of people don’t know I lived here when I was younger),” she wrote.  Cavallari hasn’t always expressed love for Chicago and fans critical of her quarterback husband.  “I’d be lying if I didn’t say that, living in Chicago I feel like my career suffers a little bit just because I am completely out of the limelight,” she told Yahoo! Celebrity last summer .
