Congratulations! Here's some useful information about the ordering process that I found helpful when ordering my car:

After the VIN is issued, the next step is a build date. Once a build date is assigned, approximately seven days (our experience) prior to the build date the Monroney (window sticker) is available. Approximately two business days after your car has been built ETIS (European ford website) will show the completion date of your car. The next step is in transit, this is a blackhole, it could be one day or any number of days until your vehicle ships.
(From this thread)

When you get your window sticker, you can see whether or not your car is coming via rail or car. I found that kind of neat. Your build date is on your window sticker, as well.

What did you order? :)
