I'm afraid you have some details missing, like the second 3-way switch. Could you do a drawing of what you have?

Your drawing looks correct providing you followed the correct color code. By the way you could have controlled both lights with the 3-way switches. I omitted the grounds for simplification.

One problem you may have with code. The location of the outlets may require acrc fault protection and switches can cause them to trip.
