Its one of the leaf-footed bugs, perhaps Leptoglossus oppositus or some other member of that genus. Someone more competent than I will be along to give a more definitive ID.

This is indeed a Leptoglossus sp.; most likely L. occidentalis (western conifer seed bug) - they often come indoors in search of shelter, but appear to do no harm there.

Skiigurl - It would be better if you initiated your own thread instead of inserting your query into a pre-existing thread. It will get wider viewership as regulars will know it is a new topic.
