I would not move at all in your position. You know the D7000, it is very good, particularly at low ISO where it is better than any but the D800 and D3x lack of artifact and shadow noise. The D7100 has some advantage over other DX cameras, mainly a great AF system, which would be of interest most for sports and birds-in-flight shooters. The higher pixel density of the D7100 will allow more aggressive cropping that is needed very frequently for shooters without massive and massively expensive long prime telephotos. Properly exposed images viewed on the web or monitor, none of these cameras are going to give a noticeably better image. They are all that good.
The primary reason for not upgrading is your heart is not in it. You do not need it, and would prefer not to change, that should be the end of the discussion. Invest in a nice bag or sling strap, and maybe a spare batter and be done with it. That is, until you start shooting subjects that really challenge the D7000. There is not that many subjects that would.
I have a D800 which I love shooting with, but well done D7000 shots, I can't see much difference. When I shoot an event or like today, 500 shots in a child's party and theater group award ceremony, I shot an equal number of DX D7000 shots and D800 Fx and the event organizer, looking at the unprocessed file, picked some of each for their posters.
