Spider outside my bedroom window (orbweaver maybe) - Holocnemus pluchei
Tucson, Pima County, Arizona, USA
Size: 20-25 mm
I found this guy / girl whatever outside my bedroom window, actually there were two in the same web. I think they have eggs too maybe.
I was thinking orbweaver, but it seems small and skinny for that.

Cellar Spider
Pholcidae would be my first choice. They carry their eggs in their mouths this way.

 
While this individual is pale
While this individual is paler than many others, the pattern and shape of the spider's abdomen are very distinctive. It's a female Marbled Cellar Spider, Holocnemus pluchei. This species is introduced and has spread rapidly across the southwestern United States.
