Phidippus octopunctatus
I have never seen one in person, but based on it's size and coloration, along with the body shape, it has to be P. octopunctatus. They are native to your state and several others around it.

Nice chubby adult female..

Not too many photos of these spiders on bugguide:http://bugguide.net/node/view/105011/bgimage

 
Thanks, Shannon...
I've only seen two before (males) and yesterday I saw two females, although one was somewhat smaller. This large female was gorgeous! Thanks for the help.
