Jenlee, here is Rhipsalis salicornioides, (Hatiora) Dancing Bones for comparison. The plant I had with that name was smooth stemmed with small 'swellings" along the stems. It was sold as Drunkard's dream. Your plant appears different to me.

According this Identification key and comparing photos, it more closely matches Rhipsalis trigona

Is the fruit magenta (pink-purple)? http://www.rhipsalis.com/species/trigona.htm
And is the flower white?

Xenomorph, it sure looks very much like Rhipsalis trigona. It hasn't bloom yet.
