It doesn't do it when it's idling, but if I rev it up what looks like water (doesn't smell like anti-freeze, gas, or anything, so I assumed it was water) and a little bit of white smoke comes from the tailpipe. Is that a blown head gasket?

Its likely just condensation. Like david says, antifreeze has a sweet burnt smell to it. Steam will increase this time of year with the colder temps.

Yup, if it smells sweet its anti-freeze. If it does it on a cold morning after sitting awhile, its just condensation in the exhaust and it is nothing to worry about.

Yes if the car has been siting for a long period water will condensate in the exhaust and may take some time to blow it all out. Running the car for a couple of days should stop the smoke.
