so...went back to the photo store and picked up a few things i had been thinking about getting.
grabbed a manfrotto 682B monopod
a Nikon SC-29 TTL remote cord
and a Promaster flash bracket.

I chose the monopod I did because of the option of using the legs. the bottom unscrews and you can fold up the legs and store them in the monopod if you don't want to use them. Its a monopod that can almost double as a tripod.
anyway, heres the whole setup together with the D7100, 70-200 f/2.8 and SB700
all of that together on the monopod DOES make it a tad wobbly if you touch it, and im just using a regular ball head between the camera and the monopod, but it WILL stand on its on and stay fairly steady. steady enough that you could set up a shot and use a remote shutter if you wanted to without getting camera wobble affecting the photo.

the monopod was only $140 (which I thought was pretty decent) and I got an instant 10% off from some manfrotto special.
the REAL kick in the nuts was the SC-29 TTL cord...if you want the cord that has the AF assist light, you have to spend $100 for it. (I did)
