Just wanted to share this picture of what I believe is a Zebra Jumping Spider, after doing some searching on the internet.
We’ve been finding a bunch in our house! They are very pretty.

Dear Cheyenne,
We agree with your identification of the Zebra Jumping Spider,
Salticus scenicus.  According to BugGuide it:  “Seems to be an imported European species that is now widespread in North America.”  Jumping Spiders are hunters that do not build webs.  They have excellent eyesight.
