Last night it was super hot in my house (Summer, 90 degrees plus) so I had all the windows open. I was in bed, minding my own business when this bug dive-bombed me. Needless to say it scared me half to death. I composed myself, caught it and released it the next morning. I have no clue what kind it is but I am insanely curious. Thank you for your help!

Though the distinctive pair of black spots on the wings is not as visible in your photo, this looks unmistakably like a Yellow Douglas Fir Borer, Centrodera spurca, which you can also find profiled on BugGuide.
