{2} Okay, I figured you didn't want to know 33 more things about me, 
so I chose a few questions from each blogger, for a total of 11!

Angela's Questions
  1. Your fave movie?
    • Sister Act 2, but Imitation of Life is a close second. I used to watch Sister Act 2 every night in my dorm room before I started being a party animal!
  2. Your fave candy bar?
    • Do Reese's Peanut Butter Cups count as a candy bar?
  3. What's your middle name?
    • Dionne...but growing up, I convinced some classmates that my first name was Kim and my middle name was Berly. Get it?! Kim Berly Wagner
  4. Name 1 person in your life that has influenced you the most.
    • It's so hard to choose between my mom and my dad...they've both influenced my life so much! If I had to pick one, I guess I would say my mom. She has modeled for me what a Godly woman looks like and it has been amazing to see her faith and positive attitude as she fights breast cancer.

Gayle's Questions
  1. What one item in your house {not person or pet} would you rescue from a fire?
    • My Macbook, or iPad, or of those! Probably the Macbook!
  2.  Do you have any phobias/irrational fears?
    • I have a phobia of balloons. Well, phobia may be a bit extreme, but I seriously hate balloons. Blame it on childhood experiences at field day.
  3. Favorite TV show: right now? of all time?
    • Right now: Scandal / All time: Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
  4. Who is your favorite superhero?
    • Storm from X-Men. I liked her in the comic book, the cartoon, and the movie!

Summer's Questions
  1. How many pillows do you currently have on your bed? (you can include throw pillows)
    • 9 when the bed is made up, which is I guess the answer is 2!
  2. If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    • My mom's cornbread dressing...I have to clarify that not just any cornbread dressing will has to be my mom's! I know there are some people who agree that all cornbread dressing is not created equal.
  3. What is your earliest childhood memory?
    • I have a horrible memory. I think the earliest I can remember is first grade. I remember it snowing and my teacher, Mrs. Welch, took us outside. I made a snowball and put it in my pocket. I was so disappointed when I got home and it wasn't there.
