Ignore this comment! Still getting used to the site!

That's exactly what it looked like! I think you are right... I've never seen one before so I joined here just to ask.. Pretty neat site! Thanks for the response :)

 
Spitter!
Definitely a spitting spider. These guys have the most amazing hunting tactic of spraying a mixture of venom and web from their fangs and onto their prey.

 
I looked it up after the firs
I looked it up after the first comment! Spiders are so amazing. I always put them outside if I find them in the house. Thank you guys for the help! :)
