Approval of the application with a lost green card

I just had my interview today, and I was recommended for approval after 20 minutes. I applied under 3 year rule and with a lost green card. I lost the card the past summer. I figured I would apply for the citizenship instead of paying 450 only for a replacement card. So here is my recap of the interview:

- Waited 30 mins to be called. It seemed like everyone before me got approved since they looked happy when they got out of the room. My female officer was very friendly. She asked me to put my passport, driver license, and green card on the table. I told her I lost it a few months ago and that I only had my conditional one now. She took my conditional one and said that I needed to fill out a sworn statement that everything I said about it was true. I just actually signed my name on the form which she printed out from her computer. After that, I had the civic test. Then she asked me about those yes-no questions from the application form. While she was filling out some paperwork, we had small chitchat about my husband and schooling. I was so surprised that she was so friendly and happy to me.

- Then she said congratulations! oath ceremony should be scheduled in Jan or Feb. I asked whether or not I could request it be held in Feb since I have a trip sometime in Jan. She said no, but I could write a letter to reschedule if that was the case; otherwise I would have to pay again for the application.

- Some highlights: She didn't ask to see any evidence. I offered her to see some, but she said NO.

Overall, it's a very smooth process; it only took 2 months. Because I was short of money, I was so scared that they would require me to apply for a replacement card first before approving. My immigration journey is almost over. Thank you everyone on this forum for the past 4 years.
