Is this a date or not? Please explain?

Me and my crush from work are meeting up on Friday to get a bite to out then go bowling. She said, "Maybe we can hang out Friday night?" We've been texting for 2 weeks now. She also said, "this is exciting (smile emoji)". She also told me this “Hey that would be fun, fair warning I do suck at bowling! I think it would be a good idea if we could just get to know each other better like on a friend basis if you know what I mean?” I said a couple of days earlier that we should get together and do something sometime soon. Also, should I take a day off from texting her? We've been talking for 12 days in a row now. I am very new to dating.
