2011 WK2 Spark Plug Replace - Rookie Mistakes?

So I replaced the 16 plugs on my 2011 WK2 yesterday and everything went smoothly. However, after doing some reading online I'm worried that I made a couple mistakes:

1. The engine was warm when I changed them.
2. I did not use anti-seize.

Should I take out the new plugs and add anti-seize to them when the engine is cold?

Thanks!

I would sell it while you still can! Seriously, I wouldn't worry too much. As long as you TORQUED them properly, you should be fine!
