The other night I took my cranks off to regrease them and the bb. When everything was back on I picked up my bike to move it and I noticed a spacer on the floor. Is missing 1 spacer really that huge of a problem or will it be ok?

check the distance between the frame and each crank, if there is a big difference (more than 2mm), you should put the spacer back

Aslong as your cranks don't hit your CS (I always squeeze my cranks and CS together to see if theyre loose or if they'll hit while flexing) and your chain alignment is still dead on, than it shouldn't make a difference. Also make sure you can still tighten your cranks without the head of the bolt touching your spindle (your cranks will wobble even though the bolts are tightened down)

this one, if everythigns all lined up and not hitting still you should be good
