What exactly is your question? Let's say that you and your friend are on a frictionless sheet of ice, holding hands and spinning around each other. In that case you can describe the motion as both of you spinning around your common center of mass, while that center of mass may itself be moving. True, from your point of view (a noninertial frame) she is spinning around you, and vice versa.
